Experience Something New

Every year, we offer a few small groups the opportunity to experience culture, broaden world-views, and serve others in an international context. The trips we lead are family friendly and open to any age*. And there’s no need to worry about flights, lodging, food, transportation, insurance, translators, or activities. We take care of the organization and details of the trip so that you can focus on taking it all in.

*Children under 12 years of age must travel with a parent or legal guardian

Dominican Republic

Our next opportunity to serve internationally will be in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from November 15 -20, 2018. We are so excited to introduce you to our Dominican friends and stand alongside you as you serve and love them. We have fantastic connections in the area with plenty of opportunities to serve and build unforgettable friendships.


This trip offers a unique social and cultural experience all surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and awe-inspiring vistas. Cape Town is known as the “melting pot” of the world, with people from all over who call this unique place home. On this trip, you can expect diversity, outreach, connection, growth, and the most amazing views you’ve ever seen.

First Things First

Why do we go?

International trips offer an additional avenue to lead through service. Traveling internationally to serve gives kids (and sometimes their parents) a chance to get out of their comfort zone and experience new cultures. These trips have a way of challenging perspectives, opening eyes, and changing hearts.

Where do we go?

Currently, we lead trips to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and Cape Town, South Africa. These trips are scheduled in the beginning of the year and are posted on our calendar so that you have plenty of opportunity to prepare.

Who can come?

Our desire is for anyone to be able to experience an international trip. However, we ask that children traveling alone are at least 12 years of age. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Trips are open to anyone wanting to serve, grow, and lead—even entire families!

How do I reserve a spot?

Simply fill out our form here, and provide a $200 deposit.

How much should I expect to pay for a trip?

Airfare changes from season to season, and much of the overall trip cost is dependent on flight expenses. However, you can typically expect a trip to the Dominican to cost between $2,000–$2,600, and a trip to Capetown to cost between $2,800–$3,400.

Will I need my passport?

Yes. A passport is required for any trip taken outside of the United States.

Will I need vaccinations?

Check with your family doctor on what he/she recommends, as this can vary from season to season.

Will there be medical care where my child/family will be?

Yes. There is a full time doctor on the premises in the Dominican Republic, and within a few miles of where we stay in South Africa.

How do I know what to pack?

Depending on the time of the year we are traveling, and the country we are going to, LeadforOne will provide a detailed packing list for you at the informational meeting.

What is the ratio of chaperones to kids?

Our trips are normally between 12-18 people with a chaperone for every 3 kids.
