VISIONS offers summer programs for high school-aged teenagers that focus on meaningful community service, cultural immersion, and adventure. Co-ed groups of 16 - 25 teens and 4 - 6 leaders live and work together in the heart of a host community. VISIONS runs programs in Peru, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Montana Blackfeet Reservation, and Bozeman, Montana.
VISIONS believes that encountering new perspectives fosters profound and positive change. We know that students who engage in meaningful service work in new environments gain exceptional insight—it’s been our program model for 33 years. Students settle into the daily life of the host community, get to know local residents, experience different customs and in the process begin to feel a sense of global connection. As one of the oldest international and domestic service organizations for teenagers and young adults, we celebrate this connectedness—and the hope it holds for the future. As we welcome the 2022 season, VISIONS continues to expand upon our environmental commitment with projects rooted in sustainability and connection to the land.
