 Environmental​

These trips are outdoors based and will have a service site at national or state parks, or with an environmentally minded group. The volunteer work will entail manual labor, like trail maintenance, restoration projects, and the eradication of invasive species within ecosystems. Participants will learn about the importance of respect for the environment, what aspects are being threatened in their location, and what measures may be taken for preservation. These trips are ideal for the outdoorsy and environmentally minded; expect to get dirty and spend lots of time in the sun!

Human services

Trips with human services in mind will be working directly with people to help improve some aspect of their community. This can range from working at community centers to building furniture or tutoring students. This will allow participants to fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of the area they are working in, and what needs have to be addressed by external organizations to provide additional help. The service will involve a lot of social interaction and direct communication with community members.

These trips may address the needs of the homeless, uplift those in temporary housing, or provide help in low income communities by fixing houses. Trips that serve the homeless or those living in places like the Ronald McDonald houses may help with cleaning, administrative tasks, or work directly with the people. Other trips may be providing home maintenance or helping organizations like Habitat for Humanity do builds with other volunteer groups. These projects can mean painting, plumbing, construction, or cleaning. Prepare to get dirty, do manual labor, and learn new skills!
