Join us on a journey of community, compassion and connection!

Una Vida offers a trip unlike any other trip.


It’s the story of a small and close-knit non-profit seeing out the simple, but extraordinary dream of

a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer to share with as many people as she can,

the resilient community that won her heart and changed her life.

Whether you're with a group or looking for a solo adventure, we're happy to have you!



We’re happy to work with you to create a custom experience for your team. We’ve done everything from education-themed trips for University of Montana students, to medical-themed trips for pre-med students at U.C. Irvine.


If you’re eager for a life-enriching solo adventure, consider joining Una Vida as an individual volunteer. We offer 1-3 week placements where you can plug into community projects like educational support or environmental restoration.


Ready for a longer commitment? Our interns serve between 4 and 12 weeks in an area of their preference: education, environmental studies, or youth development. Interns must speak Spanish at an intermediate level.
