Community Service with TFT

Innovative Service Projects

Service trips for teens should be meaningful, have an impact on the community, and go beyond what you have ever imagined possible, so we offer numerous unique service programs! Help at a famous national park in the Cinque Terre in Italy, build playgrounds in South Africa, or nurse endangered animals back to health in Costa Rica.

Teamwork is Key

Our Community Service trips emphasize working together to reach a common goal. Learning to work together to take on challenges is a valuable life skill teens on our programs develop. At the end of your program you will have accomplished goals, solved problems, and worked together on important projects.

Individual Growth

Our hands-on projects not only benefit the communities in which we volunteer, but they also help our students achieve personal growth and development. Teens feel empowered and ready to take on the world after seeing the positive impact they can have.

Celebrate Cultures

Traveling should be about more than just seeing. It’s about experiencing! Which is why for every program we focus on cultural immersion. We want you to gain a better understanding and appreciation of each culture and take something deeper away from your experience.

New Perspectives

Traveling provides the incredible opportunity to see things from a new perspective. Our programs highlight this and we live by the motto: it’s not strange, it’s just different! At the end of your time abroad you may discover you love some of the customs from different cultures such as leisurely strolls after dinner and fresh croissants for breakfast.

Staff Who Become Best Friends

All of our staff are chosen not just because they are experts in the countries we visit, but because they are also fun and relatable! It’s important you enjoy hanging out with your counselors, and we look forward to hanging out with you too!
