Want to combine a Service Learning Trip and an Engaged Education Trip? We call that an Epic Trip!

This thrilling program allows travelers to experience once-in-a-lifetime destinations like Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, and Mount Kilimanjaro, while also giving back to local communities with a week of volunteering.

Deepen your understanding of your destination

Get the best of both worlds by combining a week of Service Learning with a week-long Engaged Education Trip – MEDLIFE’s educational travel experiences that allow you to delve deeper and truly connect with local culture and history.

A trip to Peru would be incomplete without witnessing Machu Picchu and you can’t visit Tanzania without experiencing an African safari. With an Epic Trip, you can do both! And you can do so while continuing to support MEDLIFE partner communities and traveling sustainably.

THE 4 KEY PILLARS OF A MEDLIFE TRIP

ENVIRONMENT

Our trips are created with sustainability in mind. For Epic Trips, this means staying in eco-friendly accommodation, partnering with environmentally-conscious organizations, and learning about conservation during the trip. We also support eco-friendly projects like Fuel Efficient Stoves.

SERVICE

Giving back to local communities is at the heart of what we do at MEDLIFE. Epic Trips allow you to combine a travel adventure with a week of volunteering on a Service Learning Trip. Your trip also provides financial support to our year-round work in medicine, education, and development.

 

EDUCATION

At MEDLIFE, we believe that travel broadens our understanding of the world around us. Our trips go beyond the surface, introducing you to the local culture, history, and environment while inviting you to consider some of the most pressing challenges of the twenty-first century.
