WHAT WE DO
Service Learning, Volunteer Abroad, Study Abroad, International Work Experience and Community Engagement Programs
Become a volunteer
Our volunteers who join the Take A Trip Change A Life (TATCAL) program have an experience of a lifetime, for both the traveler and the destination. The programs offer the opportunity to live in the Dominican Republic or Honduras while enjoying fulfilling volunteer work for the local community, internship opportunities with local businesses, language immersion, and experiential learning on a daily basis. As a traveler, you’ll gain valuable life experiences through hands-on work, all while integrating into the local culture and language.
Collect funds for smiles!
As a Caritas Smile volunteer you can help raise funds through your school, organization, job, sports or anything that can help raise awareness and funds for social good.
Help us by donating
Your donation will help to educate, empower, and inspire women and children living in poverty. You will help to rebuild a school, teach women how to become sustaining through education, give a home to families living in poverty and offer hope and love to humanity.

Have you dreamed about traveling to a new country, spending your time in a meaningful way, and immersing yourself in a new language and culture? Volunteering abroad is a life-changing experience where you expand your horizons and learn in a way that could never be achieved in a classroom. We believe inspired vision, education, and a positive state of mind leads to positive mental growth.
Every year thousands of kids in poor areas of the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean are given a helping hand through Caritas Smile Programs. Volunteers work in an orphanage, teach English, music, dance, re-build schools and feed malnourished children.
The mission is to empower, educate, and inspire women and children worldwide.
