Why go on a humanitarian mission as a student?

Whether in high school or higher education, going on a humanitarian mission is a rewarding and enriching initiative. Experiencing the humanitarian field during an academic career means opening up to the international and intercultural challenges that set the pace of today’s world.

Promote your school

Organizing a student group mission helps to promote your school and the humanitarian values you share with our organization. Indeed, through such an initiative, you are able to underline your interest in ethics and sustainable development. It is a way of applying the values conveyed in educational policy and pedagogy, thus making your school more attractive for both students and employees.

Live a unique experience

Going on a humanitarian mission is a unique opportunity for a university or high school student. It is an experience that will help you in your personal development. In addition to providing you with an extremely enriching adventure, participating in a humanitarian mission will open your eyes to a world different from the daily life you know. Discovering a new culture will also help you to develop your own critical view, and to become more open-minded.

Learn new skills

Participating in a humanitarian mission helps to get away from everyday life and to develop skills. It is also an opportunity to develop intercultural competencies and other soft skills. Depending on the mission you choose, you will also be able to improve your knowledge of Spanish and/or English. Indeed, the total immersion offered by LifeTime Projects is the best option to improve your language skills

Strengthen teamwork between students

A humanitarian mission is an ideal experience to strengthen relationships within a group and to bond. You will learn how to work together but also with the local population. You will have to show tolerance, acceptance of differences, and mutual support. In an environment totally different from home, you will get to know one another better and strengthen the bond that unites you.

Understand the challenges of today’s world

We live in a complex world where we do not always understand all the issues at stake. Globalization, poverty and sustainable development are often abstract concepts. After a student humanitarian mission and the open-mindedness it will develop, high school and university students will be equipped to approach the world with a new, richer and more critical perspective. In this way, we learn to build our own judgment and actions.
