Bright Light Volunteers makes the world a brighter place by facilitating cross-cultural experiences between student volunteer groups and host communities abroad. Our mission is to promote international volunteerism and cross-cultural understanding and give students the ability to make a difference in a global way, develop international citizenship skills, and learn hands-on about other cultures.
We have developed strong relationships with a number of host communities, diligently working with them to identify key community needs and develop service projects that are safe, genuinely beneficial to the community, and promote sustainability. The communities in which we work are enthusiastic about sharing their culture and excited to have the help of volunteers to achieve their goals.
Collectively, Bright Light Volunteers' team of staff bring over 15 years of experience organizing these service oriented excursions. Our focus is on the quality of the experiences and opportunities provided, not the quantity of programs offered. Our volunteer placements are designed to empower the host communities by providing funding and manpower to get projects done while at the same time taking care not to create dependency in the communities in which we work.
We are proud to offer quality, safe, and culturally-sensitive programs, working exclusively with student groups to provide authentic and meaningful cultural exchanges that will create a positive impact on the lives of all involved. Participation in our programs will change the way your students see and experience the world around them and give them the tools necessary to become leaders in the global community.
Our volunteer excursions are customized for each particular group, working with the group leaders and the host community to structure a program that benefits all involved, while staying true to our core organizational beliefs:
