Lead a Squad Abroad

Teachers, follow these steps for you and your students to embark on a journey of a lifetime!

Each Squad chooses a focus area and destination to complete a tangible impact project and educational workshops at an under-resourced school in our partner community. Guided by our local professional staff, we also offer authentic cultural enrichment activities to provide a deeper context and understanding. Our home-base model provides safe and private accommodations for our volunteers to enjoy healthy authentic meals, relax after a meaningful day of activities, and reflect with your group on all the amazing experiences.
