All programs earn community service hours and offer financial aid, scholarships, or both. With almost seven decades of experience, Putney is the granddaddy of educational student travel. Their service taps into an international network of teachers, farmers, merchants, artisans and other NGOs to allow high schoolers to safely step out of their comfort zone and dive into a different way of life. Apogee combines the power of an outdoor experience with achievable challenges and light volunteerism like food banks, orphanages, state parks, and farms, all tied closely to the communities students visit. One of the banner service programs is a two week stint in Puerto Rico where volunteers offer hurricane relief and work on community projects like repairing rain forest trails and cleaning trash and debris from coastal wildlife refuges on Vieques Island.

Kids Who Care meets monthly to work on projects designed to be engaging for kids When you register for a project, you'll find out more about what's in store for that month. A new Teen Service Squad project is offered each month, and members choose the projects they want to do. This program will inspire, equip, and mobilize youth to take action that changes the world and themselves through service. HandsOn Broward gives teens the opportunity to see firsthand the issues in their communities, and the tools and resources they need to respond and become part of the solution. During Summer Service Camp, campers will participate in hands-on service projects at partnering nonprofit organizations to show them how they can make a positive mark on their community.

The remainder of the program is an independent research project.
