Squads Abroad partners teacher-led Middle and High School student groups with local youth organizations around the world to improve health and educational outcomes. Squads may be comprised of six or more students with two or more free teacher-chaperones. Squads choose a defined focus area, volunteer partner organization, and an enrichment project that our groups contribute towards and complete during their trip. Our volunteers provide people-to-people educational support as well as the tangible accomplishment of a much needed small construction project. Guided by our professional staff from the native country, we offer fun and engaging cultural activities which provide a deeper cultural context and understanding. Our home-base model provides safe and private accommodations for our volunteers to enjoy healthy authentic meals, relax after a meaningful day of activities, or reflect on all the amazing experiences.
