  • Families bond closer together;
  • Families get to interact with and gain insights into another culture
  • Volunteering can increase the chances of college entry
Ways to Make a Difference:

For children aged 12 or under, we have found that Our most popular destinations for families with young children are:

  • Costa Rica (care for monkeys, sloths, parrots and more at a wildlife rescue center)
  • Thailand (elephant conservation: prepare their meals, feed them, and even help bathe them)
  • Australia (assist with surveys of kangaroos, wallabies, koalas)

For children aged over 12, wildlife conservation still works well, but if you want to bond even closer as a family, consider a building project.

Our most popular destinations for families with teenagers are:
  • Cambodia (build a house for a needy family)
  • Mexico (renovate a school or home for the elderly)
