Benefits of Global Crossroad Family Volunteering Vacation
Strengthen your Family Bonds
This phase can range from 1–7 days depending on the time availability for your group. If your group has a limited time, the orientation just covers the local culture, religions, society, ways of life, safety issues, and program orientation. After orientation, your group goes directly to the volunteer project. However, If orientation is more than 2 days, we combine language, cultural immersion, and travel programs.
Work with Indigenous Communities
You'll work in communities where people value traditional relationships, elders are respected, guests are very well treated, and helping fellow human beings is considered a most important endeavor.
