Communities across Latin America and the Caribbean have critical needs. They have tremendous assets in the citizens who want to help their own communities but lack the tools to promote opportunities to get involved. New Heights is a unique program that enables community organizations tackling issues such as child health, poverty and gang violence, to reach potential volunteers eager to make a difference. New Heights bridges the gap between enthusiastic volunteers and those most in need of help.


New Heights projects are as varied as the communities it serves. Depending on local needs, volunteers work in areas such as health, education, environment, human rights, conflict resolution, civic participation and cultural understanding.

Long-Term Impact

Because New Heights matches citizens with local nonprofits, volunteers see the impact of their efforts firsthand,further investing them into finding longterm solutions to their communities’ problems and promoting volunteerism and civic participation.
