Proposed Itinerary for a Winter Break Volunteer Trip

Phase 1: Orientation (few hours)

This is where your students will be introduced to various important aspects of the culture, traditions, religions, and societal components of the country that they are visiting.

Your students will be briefed on their chosen winter break volunteering overseas opportunity during this time. All of their questions will be answered, so that they are ready and prepared to begin their humanitarian work.

Phase 2: Volunteer Program (5-6 days)

This is the core of your students’ adventure. They will choose to dedicate your time to a program that involves things like teaching, orphanage work, animal conservation, nature conservation, and construction.

Most groups are no bigger than four to five volunteers. Everything will be set up for your students, including their accommodations and transportation.

Phase 3: Closing

Your students will complete an evaluation of their winter break volunteering abroad opportunity experience. This will be a time when they say their farewells and head back to their home country.

All students will be kept together in a group living situations, such as a hostel or nearby host families. This will ensure that they can share their experience, remain connected, and feel safe.

Orientation and Cultural Immersion

Unlike individual volunteer programs, we invite local expert to give an orientation about the local country, history, life, and safety measures to your students. Depending upon the needs of the group, we also organize local cultural immersion programs, like observing local dances, visiting local villages, cooking classes, and language studies.


Over the weekend or during times of no volunteer commitment, small trips will be organized to expose your students to different parts of the country in which they are visiting.

Designated Group Leaders

Safety and the experience of the students or volunteers are very important to us. So depending up on the number of volunteers, either someone from the US office will serve as a team leader or if group is small, our local country coordinator or staff will serve as a team leader.

Our leader will stay with group 24/7 to make sure the program is going well and the students are safe at all times.
