Welcome to VISIONS

Teen Summer Service & Gap Programs
Sustainability | Cultural Exchange | Deep Learning

We believe that stepping outside of ourselves and encountering new perspectives fosters profound and positive change. We know that students who engage in meaningful service work in new environments gain exceptional insight—it’s been our program model for 33 years. Our teen volunteers and college-age Gap participants settle into the daily life of the host community, get to know local residents, experience different customs and in the process, begin to feel a sense of global connection. As one of the oldest international and domestic service organizations for teenagers and young adults, we celebrate this connectedness—and the hope it holds for the future.

As we welcome the 2022 season, VISIONS continues to expand upon our environmental commitment with projects rooted in sustainability and connection to the land.

If you are ready to ignite a future with promise, purpose and positive change, then you are ready for VISIONS.

We Are Mindful

Work That Matters

We step outside our comfort zones to accomplish things we never imagined. We start to see the world in a larger way. We gain skills, grit, self-confidence and independence. We glimpse the future self we want to be.

We Are Family

Deep Bonds

We live, work and play as community members, not tourists. We make deep connections with local residents and work together toward shared goals. We hammer, paint, talk and laugh. We knit ourselves into the fabric of the place. We make friends for life.

We Are Explorers

New Outlooks

We revel in being off the beaten path. We traverse foreign landscapes, taste fresh flavors and learn new languages. We delve into a different way of life and examine how it feels to live it. We keep our minds and hearts open.
