International & Domestic Volunteer Trips for Teens


GIVE Trips for Teenagers

(AGES 16-17)

GIVE’s international & domestic volunteer programs for teenagers take you off the beaten path to explore rural communities and truly connect with the community and their fellow volunteers through cultural immersion, sustainable volunteer projects, and once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Along the way, you will gain a greater understanding of yourself, the world you live in, and the people you share it with.

Parent Review

“As my son was looking for a fun, rewarding summer adventure, he stumbled across GIVE Volunteers through an online search. Not only did this pique his interest, but I was in awe of their various and diverse offerings, impressed with their glowing reviews, and attentiveness to responding to questions I had.  My son ended up taking the PNW trip, and it was one of his best life experiences. In fact, although being outnumbered on the trip (he was one of two boys, out of the 14-person group), he made lasting friendships and amazing memories.  The guides were super friendly, always supportive, and provided a lot of laughter.  The trip opened his eyes to not only just new surroundings, but also a greater appreciation for the environment (through their time spent preserving the ecosystem and wildlife), connecting with others from different cultures, and having the freedom to explore and adventure outside of the working hours. I would highly recommend this organization and look forward to my son attending future trips!”
