Volunteer Abroad

Upcoming Trips

The trips to Africa and the Philippines are formally organized trips. A trip to Ukraine would be informal and you would plan the itinerary and action plans yourself.



Each year we send a group of volunteers during the Summertime. Volunteers participate in humanitarian projects such as building a new dormitory for teachers. This trip also entails a luxury safari and other experiences unique to Africa. This trip costs approx $10,000. Roane travel design helps you fill your itinerary and cater the experience to you.

Each year, we plan several trips to the Philippines where we will work on projects such as feeding the hungry, doing dental and medical procedures, and other various service projects. The trip costs approximately $3,000 per person and we ask volunteers to make a $500 donation to the Philippine fund.

Ukraine is currently at war with Russia. We ask all volunteers planning to serve the people to be wise in how they do so. There is much work to do in Poland and supplies can be sent into Lviv, Ukraine where they can then be shipped to various parts of Ukraine that have been the hardest hit. The trip  costs approximately $2,000 for a one week trip and then any funds raised are used to serve the people.
