Create meaningful moments which positively impact the lives of local people in the places you love to vacation!

The Sandals Foundation and Island Routes Caribbean Adventures have teamed up to offer extraordinary voluntourism experiences for travelers and the local community. Best of all, full-time students can earn up to 10 community service hours* for their time.

Education is the Key to Learning

Many schools throughout the Caribbean are overcrowded and have limited small group sessions. As a result, many students struggle with learning skills and often get left behind. That's where Reading Road Trip comes in... join us for a weekly a volunteer literacy enhancement program designed to help improve the lives of children through structured reading lessons.

Embark on a Reading Road Trip

This heartfelt journey is more than just about reading a story; it’s about giving children a renewed excitement for learning. Visit a local school, where you’ll be paired with a small group of students, ages 3-10 years old, for a morning of ‘edu-tainment’ focused on improving their reading, listening and comprehension skills. You’ll take home humbling memories from the heart and leave behind a lasting impact!
