Immersion Trips

Help change a Life!

Our immersion trips go far beyond “voluntourism” and truly transform both the lives of the trip participants and those we serve. Working side-by-side with the people of BelizeNicaraguaAppalachia, and Louisville, you will experience new cultures and friendships. Learn the history of the regions we serve, enjoy the geography and natural beauty. Building a new home, repairing an existing house, and working with the children in Hand in Hand’s programs are all part of an experience you won't forget.


A Shift in Focus

Our immersion trip volunteers fuel our mission with their smiles, their sweat, and their financial support. Covid-19 has certainly slowed us down, but it hasn't stopped us. Children and young adults continue learning and growing because of your support. Children affected by HIV/AIDS still receive care and medication. Hungry families receive food assistance. Homes are being built and restored because of your generosity.

In time we hope to resume trips to all locations at full capacity, but for now, we have resumed immersion trips to Appalachia and Louisville, Kentucky. We welcome groups of up to 10 participants in Louisville for full and half-day experiences. Appalachia (Auxier, KY) will host groups of 20 participants or less. All participants and staff will be asked to follow CDC and Kentucky health guidelines.
