This is Service Learning with EF

Forge a (literal) path in a national park. Get your hands dirty on an urban farm. Plant something. Start a conversation with a stranger. Help introduce an endangered species back into the wild. Band together. Swing a hammer. Sort school supplies for families in need. Taste a different food. Build a greenhouse. Serve a meal. Follow directions. Help others do the same. Get inspired by the kind of progress you can see, and the kind of change you can feel.

Immersive Programs + Meaningful Service Projects

On a Service Learning tour, your students work with established nonprofits, NGOs, and locals on community-driven projects. Through hands-on work and exposure to the new cultures, students learn collaboration and problem-solving skills while making contributions that are both meaningful and sustainable.

Our impact report explores the tangible differences travelers have made in Peru, the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, and beyond—and highlights the more intangible, perspective-shifting changes they take home with them.
