Our Bound For Peace trips every year to Colombia have so much to offer for a variety of reasons. Being in an unfamiliar place may be scary, but many of our past interns and volunteers who have gone in years past are so grateful that they participated in our Bound For Peace program and would encourage anyone who is dedicated, interested in giving back, and giving a brighter future to kids to go for more reasons than not. Here are just a few reasons why:
Many potential volunteers and interns have never been to Colombia before, so this is a perfect opportunity to visit a new place! Our Bound For Peace programs explore famous landmarks of the country and participate in many outdoor activities.
Throughout this trip, you’re able to make some of the most amazing friendships! Not only are you able to bond with the children in these programs, but you’re able to make lasting friendships with other volunteers. Meeting the people within the city become like family as well!
When visiting Colombia through our trips, you’re able to experience the culture. This includes new foods, local celebrations and the language!
Among all of these amazing reasons, the most rewarding reason why anyone and dedicated students should come on one of our Bound for Peace trips is because of the incredible impact you’ll have on the lives of others. Being able to make a difference in so many young girls lives alongside others with similar passions, makes our trips one of the best trips you’ll be able to experience! So many of our past members who have gone on the trips recommend them to anyone and were so sad to leave!
