YOUTH TRIP: ECUADOR - ANDES

Embark on a journey like no other to the Andes Mountains

Join a remarkable community in their story of transformation.

The longest continental mountain range in the world—also known as the Andes—is where your adventure takes place. Step into an indigenous community to volunteer with local women’s groups, join a minga—a community call to action for the greater good—to help build a school or clean water project and explore the rich history of Ecuador. From the peaks of the Andes high in the clouds to the lush jungle of the Amazon basin miles below, this is an adventure packed to the brim.
