Join us on a Global Outreach Trip!

We invite anyone and everyone interested in going on a trip with us to sign up and invite others to join you.

Volunteers who join a Global Outreach Trip become the “hands and feet” of Jesus as they witness what God has purposed to do through Kids Around the World — whether by giving kids the gift of play with a beautiful playground, providing nutritious meals, or sharing God’s story of love for them.

*These trips are open to anyone wanting to join a mission team with Kids Around the World*

Why Join a Global Outreach Trip?

Learn About Your Gifts & Abilities

Use your skills in a missions setting to help bring God’s hope to kids. Maybe even discover how you can be used in ways you never knew were possible.

Experience God in Your Life

Get out of your comfort zone and allow God to stretch you and grow your faith as you see Him at work in, through, and around yourself and your team.

Gain a New Perspective on Life

Meet people in other countries and see a little of the world through their eyes. Learn about their culture, challenges, views, and what brings them joy. As you do, you just may learn to see others, God, the world, and yourself in a whole new light.

Serve Others

Use your time, talent and resources to help meet the needs of kids with physical and spiritual need.  In the process you will learn to genuinely care about others as you put their interests before your own.

*Trips marked ‘OPEN’ are available to the general public
