Volunteer Abroad to Raise Children’s Potential

Three decades of transformational service to long-term community partners worldwide! A steady stream of volunteers provide the essential resources which nurture at-risk children and their families - enabling them to grow and flourish. Contribute to genuine development projects on a one- to three-week "volunteer vacation" and see how significant you can be.

Join us in December at our 30th Anniversary Gala - Visit our Anniversary Website for more information and to purchase tickets.
