Trip Information


At Trade-Works we are one big family. The volunteer team stays in modest living quarters. Flexibility with sleeping arrangements is necessary as you will be asked to share a room with another team member.

Meals are provided three times daily. Given our community dining setup, we're unable to cater to significant dietary restrictions. All other snacks or alcoholic beverages are up to the individual volunteers to purchase. 


Work assignments usually involve some physical activity: hot climates and humidity. 

International travel always entails some degree of the unknown.

All Trade-Works team members participate at their own risk.


If you must cancel your Trade-Works trip, we cannot offer refunds as every payment s a donation to the overall service trip. One hundred percent of your donations will utilized by Trade-Works to meet current workshop needs.

Trade-Works cannot compensate for the cost of expenses resulting from the cancellation.

Delays en route — If any delays occur en route, causing you to miss your meet-up with the team, our staff will work hard to assist you in connecting with the team. However, we cannot be responsible for any expenses incurred because of flight problems.
