The VISIONS Foundation was established in 2016 and promotes cross cultural exchange by supporting service-learning opportunities for students around the world. The Foundation also partners with international organizations to respond to their community’s most pressing needs. Building on the Foundation’s past success, we are focusing additional effort in growing its capacity this summer.

In 1992, VISIONS started working on meaningful community service projects in the British Virgin Islands.
While service work is at the root of each teen service program, it’s in equal measure with cultural immersion that transcends the experience of an average tourist. In all of our homes away from home, we live very much as local people do, and we are part of the fabric of daily life.
