The combined resources of WorldStrides and International Studies Abroad (ISA), allow us to partner with established community organizations to offer service-learning for faculty-led programs - ranging from a half-day project to a 4-week immersion. These service-learning opportunities are developed alongside our university partners, and can be customized to meet the academic goals of any discipline.

Community Volunteer Day

These one-day opportunities allow the group to engage with the local community to gain hands-on experience with a local NGO. Community Volunteer Days begin with an introduction to the community organization(s) and the local challenge at hand. These projects can be customized to any itinerary and destination, with opportunities for either a full or half-day volunteering.

Sample projects include:

  • painting murals to raise awareness about an environmental or social issue,
  • participating in a trash clean-up day, serving or preparing food at a shelter
  • working alongside an environmental organization on deforestation efforts.
