Why volunteer?

our trips are different, and we think you’ll appreciate that ✈️

1) Impact. Although we take every precaution to make our trips safe, fun and rewarding, Yuda Bands service trips are not our main focus. Rather, the main thrust of the Yuda Bands organization is building scholarship funds for educating youth in developing nations, AND implementing leadership and character building training to make the most of that education. Our trips SUPPORT that never-ending quest. When you participate in one of our summer service trips, you are adding strength to a constantly running program that will continue after you leave. That’s called sustainability.

2) Safety. Traveling internationally can be scary and intimidating, especially if it’s your first time. We only travel where our guides have experience and lots of local support. It’s about being smart and avoiding risky situations. We have never had any issues with safety or feeling in danger.

3) Cost. We realize that this can be a huge factor in volunteering which is why we’ve spent 12 years perfecting our trips and cutting travel costs without cutting impact. You’ll find that our trips are 30%+ less expensive compared to similar trips. We’ve also partnered with some sponsors to offer scholarships to assist volunteers that might need some extra help (more below).

4) Atmosphere. This is a service trip and we will complete multiple service projects and leadership trainings with the International Yuda Bands students. Trip volunteers are self motivated and service oriented. Our trips include students, teachers, parents and adults anxious to make a difference in the world.

Tri-lingual Guides with years of experience traveling and living abroad

Our guides have lived many years abroad with their families and as missionaries learning about cultures and customs. Why does this matter? Because their expertise translates into safer, uniquely fulfilling, and more culturally rich service trips for you.
