About Us

Squads Abroad empowers youth organizations around the world to improve health and educational outcomes. Our model matches teacher-led Middle and High School groups with community driven sustainable initiatives. Each Squad chooses a defined focus area, volunteer partner organization, and an enrichment project that our groups contribute towards and complete during their trip. Our volunteers provide people-to-people educational support as well as the tangible accomplishment of a much needed small construction project. Guided by our professional staff from the native country, we offer fun and engaging cultural activities which provide a deeper cultural context and understanding. Our home-base model provides safe and private accommodations for our volunteers to enjoy healthy authentic meals, relax after a meaningful day of activities, and reflect with your group on all the amazing experiences.

Since 2004, Global Brigades has mobilized tens of thousands of students and professionals through skill-based programs that work in partnership with community members to improve the quality of life in under-resourced regions while respecting local culture.
