WorldStamp is a 9-month gap year program for exceptional young people ages 18 to 23, founded by a former Peace Corps Volunteer and lifelong educator. Your 2016 cohort will spend three months each in India, Guatemala, and Costa Rica, serving their communities and visiting incredible destinations.

The communities we stay in are ones where we have strong ties based on years of engagement with youth, families, and service coordinators forged over years of service trips with Dream Volunteers, founded in 2007. We have run hundreds of short-term service trips to these locations, becoming incredibly strong at ensuring both safety and quality of experience.

Across the world, we are deeply inspired by the young men and women of the Young Dreamer Network, who are committed to service and education even in the face of tremendous obstacles. WorldStamp, Dream Volunteers, and the Young Dreamer Network are all part of the same organization. They have no religious affiliation and are open to participants from all backgrounds.
