International Family Programs help bring families together and provide a truly unique and invaluable bonding experience. Family program participants have a desire to break away from traditional family vacations and choose to instead embark on a program that will teach their family the benefits of giving, learning, and respecting cultural diversity. Sharing this life-changing experience abroad opens your family’s eyes to how diverse and incredible the world is. It is a great opportunity to share a fun experience with a group of trustworthy traveling companions. Families who take advantage of the opportunity of a program abroad often find that the stories, photos, and meaningful memories made are a lifelong gift they share with each family member.
Family programs offer many different options based on the needs and goals of the unit. Some past World Endeavors family participants have included a father and daughter working side by side at a children’s home in Ecuador, a family with two high-school-aged children volunteering with a street children assistance project in Ecuador, and a young couple who spent their honeymoon volunteering in Costa Rica.
