Program Development is a key expertise of Via Staff providing faculty and student leaders collaborative input to refine itineraries. We create unique access to local partners and coordinate all pre-trip activities.

Travel Services provide 3 meals-a-day including snacks and clean water, lodging at community site, adventure activity and museum entrance fees, first aid supplies, and 24-hour supervision.

Educational Services create dynamic cultural exchange through a full-time Regional Coordinator, presentations by local experts and partner organizations, discussions on regional issues and initiatives, community preparation and participation support.

Community Support covers the cost of volunteer work projects, bringing vital resources to community-driven initiatives, and funding the purchase of tools and materials that facilitate the visitor experience.

Sustainable Development Support provides an important donation to mission-based initiatives for year-round program development of micro-credit, nutrition, leadership education, ecology training, and sustainable development initiatives.
