Travel with Purpose

Via Volunteer Travel Programs offer a wide variety of volunteer travel opportunities to institutions looking for dynamic experiences for mission trips, service immersions, Alternative Spring Breaks, corporate team-building, and social justice initiatives. Volunteer service is a strategic and important extension of community outreach and we have designed our programs to offer meaningful engagement that is seamlessly integrated with development initiatives around the world. We are proud to partner with schools, churches, businesses, individuals and local partner development organizations linking unique communities to support community-defined projects that contribute to improving the quality of life. The impact of these vital service and cultural exchanges helps to raise awareness of the complex challenges faced at the community level while simultaneously providing a vehicle for transparency, support, and an influx of much needed energy!


By joining a Via Volunteer Travel Program you are helping Via International educate people to be agents of positive change in their own lives and in the lives of those in their communities.


MaryAnne Cappelleri, Campus Minister for Service Immersion Programs, Stonehill College

“Our first experience working with Via International was exemplary.  The communication with the organizers was thorough and timely.  All aspects of the trip were carefully considered and taken care of with great respect to our group needs and the needs of the receiving community.  Our students walked away with a heightened commitment to learning about indigenous peoples, immigration and migration into the United States and a desire to educate their peers, friends and families regarding the information they learned.  We are definitely partnering with Via again and are grateful for such an educational, fun and life changing experience for all involved.”


Karey Sabol, Director of International Programs, University  of Colorado Boulder

“Via International is an excellent partner in engaging students in grassroots community development. During our recent service-learning trip to Bolivia, they proved responsive to our needs and adept at working with community partners and navigating local realities. The students came away with a remarkable understanding of local issues and global interconnectedness.” 


Andrea Goicochea, Assistant Director International Immersion Programs, Loyola University Maryland
 
I highly recommend Via International as a great host agency for meaningful immersion programs, both domestic and international. They are rooted in the community with years of experience and relationships, organized and offer great educational input for the participants. They have everything you need for a comprehensive experience.”
