ADRA Connections is the Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s (ADRA) short-term service program. A trip with ADRA Connections takes volunteers into the field to put compassion into action and make an impact for communities in need, no experience necessary. Through ADRA Connections, volunteers are given the chance to take that life-changing adventure, find their purpose in service, create life-long friendships, and see faith in a new, transformative way.
We want our volunteers to focus on the experience, so we take care of the logistics! Once a trip is booked, our team takes care of lodging, in-country transport, meals, and other details.
ADRA Connections works closely with the ADRA office in the country we’re visiting to ensure all safety measures are in place for volunteers. We provide personalized planning before your trip, experienced in-country staff, insurance – everything that can be done to ensure your safety and well-being.
All ADRA Connections projects fit into the context of a larger strategy of development. What does this mean? It means that we want to make sure any project we work on has established community support and a team to continue the work in that community after our volunteers return home. We believe that true change comes from within a community, and our role is simply to support and offer our volunteers as well as community members in the country we serve an opportunity to create connection. All ADRA Connections projects fit into the larger ADRA mission. To learn more about ADRA’s global work, visit ADRA.org.
Every new day on an ADRA Connections trip is an opportunity to share the love of God. As part of the service experience, we come together with volunteers every morning and evening to talk about the work we’re doing and how it fits into the bigger picture of loving like Jesus.
