Service Learning and Alternative Spring Break

We believe that the best way to learn is by doing. When a student experiences a place – meeting real parents, playing with children, seeing a family’s real living conditions, smelling the air, and seeing the sites – it moves something within them that no textbook alone ever could. Put together with a high school or university Service Learning program or used as an Alternative Spring Break (or fall, summer, or winter), the impact can be deep and lifelong.

We have hosted numerous student groups at our projects in the United States and around the world, and we would love to host yours. The students will be changing lives as they experience the world and help build or repair homes with families in need.

We help groups go on two types of trips: global or domestic (U.S.).

Global Opportunities

Help build homes and relationships with people around the world. Our Global Builders program sends teams on affordable short-term trips to places like El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Peru, as well as to more-distant places like Armenia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

We have no required language or construction skills. Most sites accept both youth (14+) and adults. Learn more about our Global Builders opportunities

U.S. Opportunities

We operate through local Covenant Partner organizations, which are volunteer-led and -driven.

Visiting student teams will have the opportunity to assist one of our Covenant Partners in helping to build or renovate a home for a family in need in their community. Rural and urban options.
