VISIONS offers teenagers opportunities for ambitious service work and cross-cultural immersion in the United States and abroad. We work with and for intercultural communities that lack financial and other development resources. Through service, authentic experience, and active exploration, we encourage new perspectives and dynamic learning.
Our home base is in Battambang, the capital of Battambang Province in northwest Cambodia. It is the country’s second largest city and a hub for the entire region but feels like a sweet small town. Projects include masonry, construction, and work on school infrastructure. You'll also get to lead summer classes for the kids who will soon use the facilities you're building.
After work and on weekends you'll get to visit local parks and markets, play with neighborhood kids, and visit Angkor Wat—one of the Seven Wonders of the World. You'll also learn about the history of Cambodia and experience a society in the process of rebuilding.
