We believe that stepping outside of ourselves and encountering new perspectives fosters profound and positive change. We know that students who engage in meaningful service work in new environments gain exceptional insight—it’s been our program model for 33 years. Our teen volunteers and college-age Gap participants settle into the daily life of the host community, get to know local residents, experience different customs and in the process, begin to feel a sense of global connection. As one of the oldest international and domestic service organizations for teenagers and young adults, we celebrate this connectedness—and the hope it holds for the future.
As we welcome the 2021 season, VISIONS expands upon our environmental commitment with projects rooted in sustainability and connection to the land.
If you are ready to ignite a future with promise, purpose and positive change, then you are ready for VISIONS.
