Our Mission

For our participants:

We strive to provide diverse, affordable, meaningful, and ethical global service-learning opportunities. Through professional and personalized support, our goal is for each participant to meet our learning objectives of personal growth, intercultural competency, academic application, and civic engagement.

For our community partners:

We are dedicated to developing ethical and sustainable service-learning programs with the intention of forming mutually beneficial relationships while making a positive impact on the communities we serve. In bringing unique people and cultures together, we aim to promote an understanding of global issues.

This program is unique in the sense that it has the ability to transcend cultural differences and connect with people so different from one another thanks to one common passion: serving others. If you want the opportunity to really dive into a culture and connect with people of the host community, service-learning is the best way to do it.

I loved my service-learning experience abroad and would recommend it to anyone! For me, it was a great opportunity to integrate my Spanish language skills with my area of study (nursing), which is a really unique opportunity. It gave me the chance to have more purposeful interaction with the host community during my time abroad, which I think it a key aspect to the study abroad experience.

I learned so much participating in service-learning. This experience allows you to open your mind to so many different ways of life, social issues happening in other countries, and ways you can help. The skills you develop are endless because you learn to work alongside diverse groups and not only share your knowledge but also learn from them as well. This experience really helped me grow as a person.
