OUR MISSION, VISION, & VALUES
Behind our commitment to international volunteer work is a philosophy that provides the focus for our organization. This philosophy consists of a vision, a mission by which we can achieve that vision, and a set of core values that define how we approach everything we do:
Our Vision is of a world where people value cultures different from their own, are aware of global issues, and are empowered to effect positive change.
Our Mission is to operate volunteer programs around the world in partnership with sustainable community initiatives, bringing people together to work side-by-side while sharing perspectives and fostering cultural understanding. We are an international not-for-profit organization with no political or religious affiliations.
- Shared Humanity When people of different cultures have an opportunity to connect, there comes an understanding of our shared humanity.
- Respect We accept, appreciate and respect that people know and understand what is appropriate for their own communities.
- Integrity We commit to ensuring the safety, flexibility, professionalism, transparency and excellence of our programs.
