This is Service Learning with EF

Forge a (literal) path in a national park. Get your hands dirty on an urban farm. Plant something. Start a conversation with a stranger. Help introduce an endangered species back into the wild. Band together. Swing a hammer. Sort school supplies for families in need. Taste a different food. Build a greenhouse. Serve a meal. Follow directions. Help others do the same. Get inspired by the kind of progress you can see, and the kind of change you can feel.

We partner with established nonprofits and NGOs to make sure your contributions are both meaningful and sustainable.
