Volunteer Expeditions (a branch of Amizade) plans and organizes your group’s volunteer vacation. Whether you want to help rebuild New Orleans or take advantage of one of Amizade's many inspiring volunteer trips, we'll take care of the details. We’ll build your schedule to fit your needs and budget so you can focus on what really matters: helping others. Travel with your family, student organization, or faith-based or corporate group to an area that needs your help. We offer alternative spring break options, religious service learning trips and general volunteer travel.
Amizade is a nonprofit volunteer travel-planning service. Volunteer Expeditions is proud to become part of this incredible organization. We assist families, college students, corporate- or faith-based groups in bringing volunteer delegations to communities requesting assistance, such as New Orleans, Jamaica, Appalachia, DC, the Navajo Nation, and more. Our services make the planning easy and affordable. These community-building volunteer travel opportunities are focused on social change, social justice, and service learning. Each trip offers its own rewards and becomes a powerful experience. Travel with us any time of the year – recruiting volunteers is our ongoing goal!
OUR SERVICES CAN INCLUDE:
- Arranging ground and air transportation
- Presenting a broad selection of volunteer opportunities and communities in need of rebuilding
- Identifying a selection of hotels
- Supplying food on work sites and making restaurant reservations
- Providing tours of the cities we visit
- Arranging for visits and speaker presentations from universities, hospitals, journalists and community leaders
These services can be tailored to the time frame, budget and objectives of a visiting group. While some groups want adult experiences, others prefer family participation, and others yet take school groups ages twelve and up. We have worked with groups ranging in number from 10 to over 200, and we are equipped to handle even larger groups.
