Do you love to travel but want to be more than a tourist?

Do you want to "travel with a purpose"?

We invite you to join Paterson Habitat's "Travel with a Purpose" (TWAP) volunteer team and build decent, affordable shelter in a local and world destinations alongside members of the host community. Each trip itinerary is balanced with work, rest, and cultural experiences. No construction experience is necessary. TWAP trips are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something truly meaningful, discover a new culture and new friends, and learn some new things about yourself, too.
