On an RLT summer community service program, you may find yourself working in a community in Ecuador building an irrigation system, or in Vietnam working with victims of agent orange, or in Costa Rica or New Orleans living in a community and helping to rebuild homes, or working with teaching English to novice Monks in Thailand.
The service learning element and the camaraderie aspect of the trip have strengthened my empathy for humanity and made me even more appreciative of the little luxuries of living in America."

We define global service as a community-driven experience that applies structured, critically reflective practices to better understand the world; self; culture; human dignity; positionality; socio-economic, political, and environmental issues; power relations; and social responsibility, in a global context. The Road Less Traveled believes in exchange above all else. Our priority is to bring about positive benefit to communities across the world and most importantly – to connect with others and exchange ideas.
