The summer that I went on a VISIONS service trip to the Dominican Republic was truly unforgettable (August 2006). It was a turning point for me in my life that helped me decide to study Spanish, as well as Global Studies in college. The community work we did there, the amazing locals who made us feel so welcome, and the great VISIONS staff all made for one of the best summers I've ever had. We worked hard during the week, building a school alongside the sweetest local kids and teens, (who ... (more »)

VISIONS was an amazing experience for me. I went August 2012 to Nicaragua for 3 weeks. I still think about how much fun and how awesome it was. It is a program any teen can enjoy. Just about everything about it was great. Meet great people both native to Nicaragua, and people like me from different States and countries. Got to see and exprience cool sights and differnt fun activities. There so much that was good. Also got to help the community. What we did was help to build a foundation for a ho... (more »)

I really enjoyed VISIONS Montana! I met so many nice kids, and I was able to really connect with everyone. I am not always the kid who gets along very well with everyone, but this was a fun experience and I learned a lot.

I spent this past summer in Montana, on the Blackfeet Native American Reservation right by Glacier National Park.  To say it was beautiful, both physically and spiritually, would be misleading - there are no words for how absolutely stunning every moment was. It was eye-opening. It's an experience I'll always look back on with fondness. It definitely changed me inside and out.

I love VISIONS so much! I did three summers with them in Peru, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. VISIONS has helped me grow as a person each summer and I have made some of my closest friends on my trips. The communities that you stay in are so welcoming and the leaders are fantastic. The projects that I participated in, like building bathrooms and teaching adults english, were both rewarding and fun to do. VISIONS has played a huge role in my life and I will always cherish the memories of my time spent ... (more »)

Visions BVI was one of the best experiences of my life, hands down. I thought it was amazing getting to know all the kids and making new friends. Also the leaders were great, and you got to know them as well. The beaches literally like something you would see on a post card, and you have the entire beach to your self most of the time. The fruit is the freshest and best tasting fruit you can get.

Visions is an amazing organization different from all others. During my two summers with Visions, in Peru, and in the DR, my language skills soared, I met an incredible and diverse group of people, and I made a difference in the communities I was living in. I became a part of the culture in Milloncito and in Urubamba; I was not simply watching from afar.

VISIONS is an incredible organization that actually makes a difference.  My two summers with them, volunteering on a Native American reservation in Montana and in Peru, were the most enriching experiences of my life.  I have made lifelong friends and lived in some of the most welcoming, spiritual, and downright incredible communities in the world.  VISIONS is simply amazing.
