Exchanges to Uganda

A Sustainable Way to Volunteer Abroad Changing the World, One Friendship at a Time

Our exchanges offer a unique opportunity to experience social entrepreneurship in a global context through collaborating with a youth-led social venture.

Peer-to-peer collaborations – where everyone is learning through the experience and bringing their own creativity, curiosity, and perspectives to tasks – are tailored to participants’ skills and sustained through a longer-term remote collaborative experience over the internet.

Ultimately, this leads to a more meaningful and more sustainable form of intercultural cooperation.
