Backed by over 40 years of experience offering educational programs for youth, Lifeworks offers global programs for teens which combine international community service projects with cultural immersion, travel and outdoor adventure.
At Lifeworks, we believe in each individual's unique potential to affect positive change. By bringing together teams of talented and driven young adults, we amplify our ability to create a positive ripple effect that we hope will continue long after our programs conclude. By working in community with others, we are able to impact and leave an imprint on many different levels...
People: One-on-one interactions while working toward a common goal, build understanding and camaraderie, person by person.
Places: Working in community and with the community achieves results that go beyond what a single person might accomplish. The benefits of the accomplishment enhance the broader community, and, at times, positive efforts inspire community growth because good works can be contagious. Just getting started is often the key; once the ball is rolling, others tend to contribute spontaneously.
Perspectives: Contributing to the global community while expanding your own personal horizons will change your perspective, guaranteed. You'll grow as an individual and leave with a huge sense of achievement for what you and your team has accomplished.
In combination, these three elements form the core of the Lifeworks philosophy and define the goals of each program that we offer. In truth, we never know how far-reaching our impact can be; yet there's beauty in holding the vision that our individual acts make a difference. That way, every step taken holds that challenge and possibility.
