My children and I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer with Kids Around the World to help build a playground in a small town in Mexico. Serving others with my children was a fulfilling experience filled with joy, hope, and love.
Everyone has a place and a purpose on our teams…
Our volunteer Global Outreach Trips are the “hands and feet” that get to go and see what God has purposed to do through Kids Around the World come to fruition — whether it is by giving kids the gift of play with a beautiful playground, providing nutritious meals, or sharing God’s story of His love for them. We partner with amazing ministries all over the world and come alongside them to help kids come to know God’s transforming hope in their own lives. The work our teams do often serves as a springboard to impact more and more children.
Our team members come from all walks of life, locations, different age levels and abilities. They all have a place and a purpose on our teams and we are so thankful for all that they do! There is so much more to be done! Won’t you join us?
Why Join a Global Outreach Trip?

I felt exceptionally safe and was comfortable with the environment that I was placed in for the duration of the trip. The KIDS team leader made sure we had safe drinking water available at all times.
The reward at the end of each trip is seeing the joy on the kids’ faces as they try out their new playground for the first time and knowing that I was able to add a small piece of enjoyment to that child, their family, and their community!

Yes! We are currently traveling internationally with teams to our Generation Hope locations. These trips are with our GenHope partners to visit the Hope Zones they are supporting. On our GenHope trips, we are traveling to Hope Zones to be a part of ministry training, feeding programs, or building a playground; and get to know the kids and communities as we grow together in Christ.

Our volunteer Global Outreach Trips are the “hands and feet” that get to go and see what God is doing in children’s lives and communities around the world. Our mission is to share God’s transforming hope with kids and their communities through food, play, and story. We do this as we create environments within local communities through feeding programs, playgrounds, and StoryClubs. In these gatherings, kids experience hope through a daily meal, a safe place to play, and stories from the Bible. Kids, families, and whole communities are strengthened as they move toward a Christ-centered life; a movement we call Generation Hope. We partner with amazing ministries, businesses, and individuals to connect and grow with Hope Zones and build a Generation of Hope together.
People like you plan an intricate role in making this all happen by packing meals, building playgrounds, and visiting our communities to share the love of Christ with kids!
