Spring Break Service Adventures

“I never thought one week could change my life.”

Don’t let Spring Break fly by—take advantage of it!

Short and sweet, these 8-day programs are great for both first-time and experienced travelers who are fired up to do something positive and be the change for a community in need.

1. Animal & Wildlife Conservation in Costa Rica

Costa Rica: Spring Break Sea Turtle Initiative™

Work with returned Peace Corps volunteers on a local initiative to protect nesting sea turtles. Join night patrols, help maintain a turtle nursery and soar through the jungle canopy on zipline!

2. Sustainable Building Projects in the Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic: Spring Break Service Adventure

Go beyond the tourist destinations and work directly with rural communities. Learn how homes are being built from repurposed plastic bottles and in your free time, go snorkeling over coral reefs.
