Welcome to VISIONS

We believe that stepping outside of ourselves and encountering new perspectives fosters profound and positive change. We know that young people who engage in meaningful service work in unfamiliar environments gain exceptional insight—it’s been our program model for 30 years. Our students 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 summer service organizations for teenagers, we celebrate this connectedness—and the hope it holds for the future.

Since 1988, we’ve built more than 1,200 structures and provided countless hours of social service.

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.
