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.
