Who We Are

We are an international nonprofit organization that facilitates purposeful travel to reach at-risk and orphaned children abroad.  

Mission Statement

JOY brings international programs and leadership opportunities to college students. We provide at-risk and orphaned children with a meaningful connection to these students in-country.

Our Vision

By empowering students seeking purpose to engage in JOY, 

by partnering universities with underprivileged communities abroad,

we aim to revitalize a spirit of joy and service on campuses across the country.

We envision a place on campus where young people become confident and compassionate leaders.

Together, we can equip college students to serve at-risk and orphaned youth around the world.
