Global Village Trips

Travel with Habitat

Habitat may work around the corner from you, but we also work around the world.

Our Global Village trips offer volunteers more than just the opportunity to swing a hammer. While every Global Village trip is different, you can expect to gain once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories. During your trip, you will experience the host country’s culture, language and social practices while working alongside homeowners and volunteers of all backgrounds, races and religions.

Your trip may only be a week or two long, but your contributions can be life-changing – both for those in the communities where you volunteer and for yourself once you get home.
