The Dominican Republic awaits you and your team to come serve the needs of others.

You will be working face to face with local people and churches, along with shelters. Typical pricing is $389/person. 


Looking for a chance to volunteer, but also experience a rich culture? Kenya is the place for you and your team! Based in Nairobi, much work is needed in several local schools, homes, and orphanages. Take a day with your team to go on a safari and experience the typical song and dance performances of the area. Any skill set is welcome. Pricing varies with the season.
