Via’s GLOBAL EDUCATION initiative creates opportunities to learn from local leaders and engage directly in the work of sustainable community development. The intentional formation of community leaders — among both visiting and hosting communities — is the focus of every experience we lead.
Via Journeys offer a wide variety of volunteer travel opportunities to institutions looking for dynamic experiences for mission trips, service immersions, Alternative Spring Breaks, corporate team-building, and social justice initiatives. Volunteer service is a strategic and important extension of community outreach and we have designed our programs to offer meaningful engagement that is seamlessly integrated with development initiatives around the world. We are proud to partner with schools, churches, businesses, individuals and local partner development organizations linking unique communities to support community-defined projects that contribute to improving the quality of life. The impact of these vital service and cultural exchanges helps to raise awareness of the complex challenges faced at the community level while simultaneously providing a vehicle for transparency, support, and an influx of much needed energy!
