Work Hard. Play Hard.
Our trips are a wonderful mix of serving communities around the world who need our help and experiencing the culture and exploring the sites of the country we’re in. These experiences are all-inclusive, but do not include airfare. We will cover all in-country transportation, accommodations and meals
Accommodations are basic during the first part of our journey, but we make it a priority to give you a rewarding and relaxing second half of the trip with beautiful views, incredible meals and luxury accommodations. During this time, you’ll have time to relax, explore, shop and reflect during this unforgettable group excursion.

Making Life Better One Community, One Family, One Project At A Time
This trip has absolutely cemented my belief in Viv and the leadership of this company. To quote Matteo Paneitz, Founder of Long Way Home, “A lot of companies do social good, NO ONE does it first....until now."

Guatemala was such an amazing adventure. It literally lit a fire within me to want more of this life. To be able to make money doing what I love to do and while also helping other people that need our help is a dream scenario for me and my purpose in life.
—Ed Kenny, Maryland
Words of the heart are difficult to put on paper but there is no greater feeling in the world than being of service to others. I doubt that our group we traveled with will ever be the same. The Guatemalan people will always remain deep in our souls as people filled with total joy and immense gratitude. We left that trip feeling the same - with total joy and immense gratitude.
—Lisa Kennedy, Massachusetts
Guatemala has changed the way I look at my day to day living. From the way I brush my teeth, to my work ethic, to the way I interact with strangers and my family. This trip has impacted me in so many ways, personally, professionally and spiritually. If you EVER have the ability to be able to make it on one of these “One at a Time” initiatives, my suggestion is to sacrifice whatever it takes to make it happen.
