Overview

Overview

VISIONS Service Adventures was one of the first teen community service travel programs. Our teen volunteers have completed more than 1,300 construction projects in addition to environmental work and social service. VISIONS is considered a gold standard for high-impact, well-planned, and meaningful summer community service experiences.

Cultural immersion and relationships with our host communities are in equal stead with the project work. We have lived and worked in most of our host communities for more than 15 years, and in some for 25+ years.

With VISIONS, you will make a difference while having fun, and you will be part of an experience that is life-changing.

Visions was an absolutely amazing experience for me! I met the most wonderful people. The immersion into the Peruvian culture was incredible, my world has been opened in so many ways because of it. I think about my 2 week trip every day. The connections Visions has with the community are so deep. I finally felt like my true authentic self.

Eating scorpions with locals, building a school bathroom in Cambodia, and constructing handicap ramps for elders in the Blackfeet tribe were some of my adventures of the last two summers. I volunteered with VISIONS, a culturally immersive community service group, where I worked for seven hours a day, five days a week. In Cambodia we partnered with a group that rescued girls from sex-trafficking and trained them to be semi-professional soccer players. I was in awe of their strength. How did they get through the day, let alone push themselves to become high intensity athletes? On the Blackfeet reservation we helped build a Sundance lodge to assist locals in their sacred ceremony. I marveled at how devoted they were to their vibrant traditions, despite all the hardships they have faced as a race. Their resilience clarified why I was there. VISIONS challenged me to “dig deep, do good, and amaze yourself.” I did.
