School Volunteer Vacations
Imagine waking up every morning knowing that your daily actions make a difference in the world, from our own backyards to beyond the ocean in between.
Our volunteer vacations partner: EF Educational Tours
For many of our trips, Me to We works in partnership with EF Educational Tours. Together, we have combined our expertise to develop a series of immersive service learning tours and we work closely with groups to ensure an amazing experience abroad. Tours are facilitated by Me to We, and groups will visit and volunteer in developing Free The Children communities overseas, working alongside locals and immersing themselves in a diverse culture. For more information about Me to We volunteer vacations and EF tours, please connect with us today!

Do more on a Me to We Volunteer Vacation
Tangible leadership development equips participants with the tools they need to act on their newfound knowledge upon their return home. Participants take the lessons and skills they learned overseas and apply them when they return home.
Through interactions with community members, participants on our trips get to know people who lead very different lives than themselves. Our trips broaden horizons and encourage understanding.
Participants will discover the country they are visiting from a truly unique perspective. Understand the issues community members face through experiential learning with the community during the day and engaging conversation at night.
Our approach to genuine volunteerism means that participants learn about sustainable change through working hand-in-hand with the community on project-building.
