WHAT WE DO
We aim to inspire and empower a community of young changemakers eager to make a positive impact on the world. We provide international student scholarships, operate youth and community development programs, and offer global service and education trips to communities in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ghana, India and Vietnam.
Dream Volunteers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a commitment to giving back through youth and community development. Our unique operational model allows us to leverage operational efficiencies from our service trips business to support our charitable endeavors providing scholarships and development programming. 100% of charitable contributions are invested directly in scholarships and the communities we support.
for teens & young adults
Young people are our future, and they are our focus. Our programs offer motivated students challenging opportunities for personal growth and discovery. They are designed for students in middle school, high school, college and beyond. Students can participate as a group or on their own. We have school year, school break, summer and gap year programs.
Experiential education is transformative for both student and teacher. New perspectives and landscapes bring students and teachers together to learn, discover, and grow in ways that will transform their lives and outlook in the classroom and on the world. At Dream Volunteers, we partner with you from start to finish, with customized trip experiences, collaborative program development connecting to classroom teaching, and all the operations support and security you need for peace of mind.
in the community
Since the very beginning, our commitment has been to the communities we support. We have deep long-standing relationships with the children and families in these communities and a vested interest in their success. We believe strongly in the model of building the solutions and the changemakers from within and our programs encompass a wide array of educational and development initiatives in the schools, community centers, and fields and farms that provide for these communities.
