Vietnam Community Service for School Tours & Student Trips
Giving back is a great way to fulfill your community service requirement for school students, build your resume, and make a difference in your community.
We, Viet Holiday Travel, have recently noticed that a growing number of schools abroad wanting to give back and requesting that community service and volunteering be included in their tour itineraries.
Undertaking community service, volunteer work and doing charity in South East Asia are precious experiences that change school students in the most profound way. Students engaging in life changing programs experience personal growth rarely discovered in regular day to day life.
Over the past few years we have designed some of the best vietnam community tours and volunteer programs for student travel and school trips combining with touring around the main sites allowing students to witness first-hand the human face of poverty and individual hardship with aiming to support the local community development as much as we can.

Open Their Eyes and Change Their Life
Students are able to participate in community service projects of various size and type that will forever change the lives of those they are working with in countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar & Thailand. Community Service Projects are determined by the communities themselves with sustainable long term benefits and a focus on educational travel.
Community service programs afford students the opportunity to form opinions and places a human face to many of the issues they simply read about or catch glimpses of on the news. Indeed, active participation in a Community Service program leads to feelings of social responsibility and connectedness, an increased care for others and a desire to get involved and co-operate in positive ways – an immeasurable benefit in our increasingly segmented society. Travel with your responsibility will be a wonderful way that can help local communities.
