“This trip made me feel tougher than ever before and capable of doing tasks big and small. When I was not doing something strenuous for me, I was doing it for those around me, because I grew to care about them, which makes you want to take more weight.” – Nathalie, Alum

The skills we teach our students don’t just change their lives; they touch the lives of everyone around them. Your gift will ripple through the communities of more than 2,000 students this year. 

Many donations can be doubled through corporate matching gifts programs. This is the perfect place to check if your employer has a program to increase your impact. If you are not finding your work here, please check with your organization's HR Department.

“Going forward, I know how to have a greater impact on others as both a follower and a leader! I cannot wait to share the joy and memories and laughter and lessons that have been experienced and learned on this journey.” –Jade, Alum
