Building Futures. Transforming Lives.
Outreach360 is a grass-roots volunteer organization where international volunteers and donors work to transform the lives of children living in economically disadvantaged areas by providing them with critical educational opportunities. Since 1994, over 17,000 volunteers have joined us and our vision of providing children with a life of choice. Drawing strength from the experience, diversity, talents and resources of our volunteers we promote innovative education as a solution to the challenges of poverty and as a sustainable path to a life of choice.
“The children in Monte Cristi are truly remarkable. They have such great potential, so it was amazing to see how positively Outreach360 impacts the community. I feel blessed to be a part of it! I learned more about myself in one week than I have in 18 years.” – Brooke Foster, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, 2013
Leading the Industry
As an industry leading volunteer organization we provide a world class service-learning experience for our volunteers that immerses them in the culture and connects them to real needs. We believe in promoting global awareness, and while working with Outreach360, volunteers learn about the history and culture of the area they are serving as well as gain understanding of the challenges and limitations of poverty in the developing world. With our unique turn-key approach, we take care of the logistics while individuals, teams, and families are able to easily plug directly into meaningful service programs in the Dominican Republic or Nicaragua. We are proud to offer volunteer programs that transform lives and inspire our volunteers to return to their home communities as leaders for change and global citizens eager to make the world a better place for all.
As an educational institution we aim to improve basic education and strengthen the capacity for self-transformation in the children we serve. Placing special focus on working with disadvantaged children, we believe that if equipped with the proper education and resources they will become the generation of change in their own communities. Children have the power to help whole families and communities escape poverty, and they are at the heart of Outreach360’s capacity building, community based efforts to improve basic education and provide opportunities to live a life of choice.
Guided by the enormous potential we see in both the children we serve and in our volunteers, we pursue our mission and vision with excellence and compassion because we truly believe in transforming lives.
