Appalachia and the Blackfeet and Crow Indian Reservations of Montana. Unique and meaningful service opportunities await you within the borders of the United States! Either in the "hollers" of West Virginia, or in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Montana, you can help resourceful communities create a better life for their children. Work one-on-one with local people on education, labor, childcare and cultural projects for a week of service, learning and fun.
You and your teammates become a part of another community, living with people of a different culture - enjoying their traditions, history and celebrations. Children serving with their families are welcome! Volunteer in the USA and be the resource for at-risk youth needing just a little extra help and encouragement. Never doubt the impact you and your family can have in just one week in our host communities!
"We look forward to Global Volunteers coming each year to the Reservation. They always bring energy and inspiration to our leaders, a vision of caring to our adults, and a good work ethic to our children. We work hand-in-hand to build a better future."
~ Bob Tailfeathers, Blackfeet Community College (Browning, Montana)
