Why Hand in Hand?

We’re small enough to feel like family. We’re big enough to impact thousands of lives each year. We have multiple ways for you to get involved.

Our immersion trips give you the opportunity to meet new people, experience unfamiliar cultures and change lives – including your own.

What is an Immersion Trip?

Our immersion trips go far beyond “voluntourism” and truly transform both the lives of the trip participants and those we serve. Working side-by-side with the people of Belize, Appalachia, and Louisville, you will experience new cultures and friendships.

Learn the history of the regions we serve and enjoy the geography and natural beauty. Building a new home, repairing an existing house, building a wheelchair ramp, and working with the children in Hand in Hand’s programs are all part of an experience you won’t forget.
