Backpacking with a Purpose

17 February 2016

Operation Groundswell is a non-profit organization that runs international volunteering programs, focusing on social justice issues and working alongside local activists, organizations, and communities. We are looking for globally conscious and socially active students who want to spend their summer exploring some of the most complex and beautiful countries in the world! 

If you’re into cultural exchange, meaningful community service, and off-the-beaten path adventure, apply by our early bird deadline on February 29! (Space is limited).

*Financial assistance is available for all students on five- and six-week programs.
