our programs

Dream Volunteers is a service-travel organization that gives back 100% of proceeds to the students, families, and communities where we travel. We offer global service trips and gap year programs for students eager to learn about the world by immersing themselves in new communities and cultures. We also invest deeply where we serve by providing academic scholarships, education, and sustainable development for our communities in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ghana, India, and Vietnam.

future changemakers

Today more than ever, we need strong leaders, moral courage, and bold innovation. Our goal at Dream Volunteers is to inspire and empower a generation of confident, compassionate, and creative global citizens who will take action in their communities and the world. Meet some of these courageous young people who are already making an impact.
