Spring break Vision trip to Zion

Immersion Trips: VISION

About the VISION Program

Whether you’re looking for meaningful volunteer opportunities, finding community, or reflecting on the connections among justice, service and spiritual life, you’ve come to the right place. The primary program we offer is called VISION, which involves immersive service-learning experiences domestically and abroad.

VISION works to effect positive social change in St. Thomas, national, and global communities. We believe this change can happen when there is an opportunity for a relationship between these communities. In VISION, we take up the challenge of traveling to sites across the United States, and Latin America.

We are generously taken in as guests by the communities that allow us to work, live, and learn with them. Since VISION began in 1987, we have seen the incredible power of this coming together.

VISION is a chance to explore the world as it currently operates while exploring yourself and the people you find yourself with.
