Mission Statement

Bright Light Volunteers' mission is to make the world a brighter place by providing educational service opportunities that foster the development of global leaders and citizens. We seek to create a more peaceful, just, interconnected world where global challenges and opportunities are met by educated, compassionate, global leaders and citizens.

Description

Our volunteer abroad programs are designed for groups of 10 or more. We customize the experience for each particular group, working with the group leaders and the host community to structure a program that benefits all involved, while staying true to our core organizational beliefs. All volunteer abroad programs provide three hours of transferable college credit to students, grades 11 through college. Our educational partner, Bethel University provides online coursework that will prepare students for their experience with guided lessons on the history and culture of the country they will visit. Global leadership development is also an essential component of the students' online course and experience abroad.

I have been helping out Bright Light Volunteers for the last few months by making posters and a power point presentation to help spread the word about their mission! What they are doing around the world is very intriguing, talk about a life experience. I would love to go on a mission with them in the future to Costa Rica or Peru. Catherine, the Executive Director, has been very fun to work with. I look forward to helping them more as time goes on! "Make the World a Brighter Place!"

I've volunteered with BLV online (I live in Saudi Arabia) making them a PowerPoint Presentation. Communication was easy and they gave me all the material I needed. I enjoyed the couple of weeks I spent helping BLV and I would do it again in a heart beat :)
