Service Adventures

Explore the world and make a difference in a community abroad. Walking Tree Travel Service Adventures are tailored for students that want to make a positive impact on a host community, while enjoying a thrilling adventure and making new friends. Programs range in duration from 10-30 days, where you will live with a local host family, speak the local language, and forge deep connections with people from a different culture. The focus of your program will be a community service project that addresses the needs of the people in your host community. The program is spent participating in exciting activities including as biking, kayaking, surfing, encountering exotic wildlife, or whitewater rafting. Choose your next adventure now!

Why Service?

Ghandi once said: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Our leaders and travelers are dedicated to serving small communities in countries around the globe. Walking Tree believes it is a privilege to visit beautiful places and stay with such compassionate host families, so in order to give back, we step up and lend a hand to the community. Our Country Directors collaborate with local community leaders to plan and implement projects that address the critical needs of our host communities.

Some examples of projects include:

  • Implementing projects that support public health and safety
  • Renovating old and outdated infrastructures
  • Building handicap accessible recreational facilities
  • Upgrading and constructing water supply systems
