At Operation Groundswell, we give students like you the tools to create meaningful change in the communities you call home. We’ll connect you with inspiring local farmers, artists, educators, and activists who are making incredible change in their communities.
Led by two experienced leaders, our small teams dive straight into life on the ground through immersive homestays and meaningful volunteer work. Local change-makers lead us in improving their communities – sharing their stories along the way.
We have grants available for students that make our summer programs accessible. 95% of students receive financial assistance grants, which can cover up to 25% of your program fee.
Programs are filling up quickly, so apply as soon as possible. The deadline for summer program applications is March 1st!
