Bridges to Community is a non-profit organization that brings volunteers of all ages to engage in meaningful development projects with communities in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.


Over 700 volunteers travel with Bridges each year to work on dozens of meaningful development projects alongside community members, impacting thousands of Nicaraguans and Dominicans. Our impact in the last 12 months:

Nicaraguan and Dominican lives impacted
Bridges volunteers
Houses built and repaired
Latrines and Bio-digesters built


The Bridges to Community volunteer experience is unlike almost anything else you can experience—it will challenge you, surprise you, inspire you, and change you.  Bridges to Community has 25 years of experience leading international service trips for volunteers of all ages. Bridges to Community forms long-term relationships with community partners, ensuring meaningful development projects that meet real needs.
