Promoting Active-Citizenship Through Alternative Breaks
Every day of the year Outreach360 empowers children to overcome the limitations of poverty through our dynamic education programs fueled by our creative and enthusiastic volunteers. We believe in bringing people together and harvesting the power of collective human potential to change the world. But, lasting change doesn’t happen overnight! It happens when passionate volunteers come together and work to create a better future for all. At Outreach360, we create a safe, affordable, and exciting way for college teams to join our cause in transforming the world and giving children a life of choice.
Life is too short to just live it for yourself. Get out, give back. This is it: your time to impact others for the rest of your life.Bridgett Kieffer, University of Missouri
"Do it!! The staff, the children, the landscape...trust me when I say it only takes seconds to fall in love with the people, the country, and all the great work Outreach360 does. The community exudes love and I am so blessed to have been a small part of how they are changing the world."Heather Gordon, Pepperdine University
I've volunteered with several other NGOs in Central America, but Outreach360 has impressed me the most. Their program is structured and grounded by the correct principles at allow volunteers to assist with impactful student learning. Thank you for a memorable experience!Shearon Kowlessar, University of Western Ontario
Jump at the opportunity to join Outreach360 for any period of time, whether a week or longer. I learned so much about myself and others during this trip, as it was definitely an invaluable experience that impacted my growth and development as both a professional and an individual. I firmly advocate others to continue their education, to get out of their comfort zone, and to pay it forward – all of which is accomplished by being a part of Outreach 360!Marissa Martinez, University of California – San Diego
The highlights of my experience with Outreach 360 was working with the children and going to the Haitian border. Both were two experiences I will carry for the rest of my life. It was the best experience of my entire life. I came to Monte Christi one way and I left with such a passion to make the world a better place. Words can not describe how eye opening the experience is, therefore you have to join Outreach360 and see the magic yourself!Brooks Artis, North Carolina State University

Volunteer With Us!
Outreach360 strives to serve children living in the poorest of neighborhoods by providing opportunities that empower them to transform their own lives. 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 a sustainable path to a life of choice. Working with the communities we serve, we focus on capacity building to ensure our education programs meet real educational needs. College teams fill a critical role in education, providing engaging and meaningful learning activities for children at Outreach360 Learning Centers, while gaining invaluable international service experience. We believe that volunteering in authentic experiential service programs is the best way to develop global awareness, and that the magic of cultural exchange has the power to truly inspire our volunteers to be contributing members to the fabric of a global society.
Education & Service
We make it a point that our volunteers are involved in meaningful service work, through which college teams can make a real difference in the community. We also see the importance in learning about the community, culture and needs of the area in which you are serving. Because of this, we have built amazing cultural and educational experiences throughout the week.
Health & Safety
The health and safety of our volunteers is our number one priority! Since 1994, our more than 22,000 volunteers have enjoyed a safe experience with Outreach360. Our experienced leadership team, professional and reliable program, and industry-leading insurance has always ensured volunteer security, allowing colleges and universities to rest assured their team is safe, while participants focus on serving.
Our Programs & Causes
Our English program focuses less on the traditional classroom model and instead seeks to promote the unique global exchange between our students and our volunteers that truly makes the language come alive.
Construction | Building Futures
Volunteers joining our construction program should be prepared to be involved in a variety of projects, including manual work involving digging foundations, cement mixing and block laying, installing fencing, constructing running trails, and more. Construction volunteers are building the future for our students!
The Outreach360 Agriculture Program will provide an opportunity for our students to serve and learn. The food production will provide food to the Outreach360 volunteer program, to the on-site student program, and may be used to generate income for the local program!
Volunteers join Outreach360 throughout the year, with the exception of a few weeks in December around the holidays.
