College Group Volunteer Trips Abroad

Custom faculty-led programs for college students

Since 1992, Projects Abroad has been a leader in organizing meaningful and impactful travel experiences for college students. As one of the world's premium providers, we specialize in creating bespoke group service trips that enhance studies and encourage students to step out of their comfort zones.

Our immersive service-learning trips are a gateway to helping students explore the world, develop key life, emotional, logic, and employability skills such as communication and problem-solving, and positively impact the communities they visit in a safe and structured environment.

Volunteering also allows students to improve their resumes; putting their knowledge into practice and gaining real-life experience while supporting local groups and organizations through community service.
