Each Compañeros program is custom-designed and guided by skilled staff to provide participants with a well-organized, healthy, and holistic experience that benefits the group of visiting volunteers and the community in which development projects takes place.
Most programs include staying with a host family, contributing to a community development project, meeting local leaders and partner organizations, cultural excursions, and time for reflection.
Other features may be added or substituted to meet particular goals. Respectful and mutually beneficial, volunteer service, and cross-cultural learning are at the core of all of our programs and practices.
