Hear From Our

World Changers!

"You're impacting someone else's life. You might not think of it, but they're also kind of impacting yours. It's an experience that stays with you for a really long time"

- Teni, 3-time returner, Newton Country Day School

"This trip has been so moving for me and I 100% recommend it if people want to help a community in need and find more about themselves in the process. I would do it again." - Vincent, July 2022

"Also, within our group, I found a real community with the people I came on this trip with. Not knowing anyone I was stepping out of my comfort zone, but in the last week I have made friends whom I feel like I've known for years." - Maddie, July 2022

"This experience has given me a new outlook on happiness in general. These kids have shown me that happiness is much more than the place you're in and what you have, it is about the community and living in the moment. I hope I can take this lesson and start to appreciate all the little things."- Lily, July 2022

"This has been one of the best weeks of my life and I will cherish the memories forever" - Quinn, July 2022

One of the biggest takeaways I got from this trip was that you do not need material items to be happy when you are surrounded by people who you love and who love you. When you are with the people that you love, all you need is the right mindset and to be grateful and appreciative of what you have.

- Grace, Winchester High School, February 2019

The World Changer Journey

  • Jun 6, 2019

    APPLICATION:

    To secure your spot as a World Changer, an application, short essay and deposit are required. Once our staff approves your application, we will get you started on your World Changer journey!

  • Before Departure

    FUNDRAISING:

    Our World Changers make up a large portion of our donor community. Yes, you are a young philanthropist! Each student group funds 50% of the school and/or playground and supports the majority of our in-country programming. That means significant funding for our teacher training, parent programs and distribution of learning materials. Majority of participants choose to fundraise and our staff will guide you through this process to help you reach your fundraising goal!

  • KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!

    Prior to departure, World Changers participate in pre-trip seminars. You can expect these sessions to cover fundraising strategies, the history and culture of Panama, Guatemala or Honduras and Global Citizenship. During this process, you will get to know our staff and the other students all while feeling well-informed about the experience you are about to embark on.

    THE TRIP:

    Students spend their week abroad participating in the final stages of the school construction. Throughout the week, students begin to open their eyes and minds to the deep and complicated causes underlying poverty. In addition to finishing the build of the school, students get to partake in cultural immersion activities such as shadowing a family in the community and outdoor adventures! You can also expect to form genuine relationships among your peers and the children in the community!

    RETURN HOME TRANSFORMED:

    Students return home with incredible stories, new lifelong friendships and a renewed sense of appreciation for their own education. Many are even inspired to take action within their own communities and are often motivated to continue their passion for service and international development throughout the next stages of life, including their future careers.
