What is Bound for Peace?
Bound for Peace is an experiential education program that sends volunteers to collaborate with community members and engage with youth in Latin America. We strive to facilitate meaningful, service-oriented interactions that emphasize and respect the needs identified by community leaders, and cultivate educational experiences that illuminate the complexities and realities of lived experience among the communities and children with whom we work.
BFP volunteers will have the opportunity to cultivate meaningful relationships, experience social and cultural immersion, and exercise effective communication skills through their participation in the trip. Since the first BFP trip to Medellín in 2003, over one hundred volunteers have traveled with Children Beyond Our Borders. We are looking for passionate, caring individuals who are motivated to cross borders, experience other cultures, and connect with the children we serve.
Prior to our departure, BFP volunteers will participate in a specialized training process, including:
- Workshopping Skills
- Interpersonal Skills
- Background on the country and city
- Travel itinerary and logistics
