Build. Train. Sustain.

 

Our Mission

Impact Travel is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to building schools around the world through voluntourism. Each trip is 1/2 volunteering and seeing the country through the eyes of a local and 1/2 exploring as a tourist.

It's the best of both worlds!

we'll make it count!

And we really mean that, we are the ones on the ground making sure your dollars go directly into service projects. Impact Travel is a grassroots non-profit started by the founders of Impact Everything to enable volunteers like us to keep traveling and making a difference. We are dedicated to building schools around the world, and selecting the location for kids who need it most.
