It’s not often that a Grammy nominated and multi-platinum performer visits Kenya! On a recent volunteer trip the famous teen singer, Joe Jonas (yes, of the Jonas Brothers!) spent eight days on an experiential volunteer trip interacting and learning from locals. From beading with Maasai Mamas to learning Swahili and participating in a traditional water walk, Jonas had an experience of a lifetime with Free the Children.
“My brothers and I have been supporting Free The Children for a number of years now,” said Jonas. “I’ve never been to Kenya before and I was able to see first-hand the value and role education has on the lives of children.”
“Everyone has an opportunity to make a difference.”
“Whether you’re a celebrity or not, giving back to people who need it most is an incredible feeling,” says Marc Kielburger, co-founder of Free The Children and Me to We. “Whether it is travelling and volunteering oversees like Joe did, or supporting your community and giving food to your local food back, everyone has an opportunity to make a difference.”
Me to We trips sends thousands of young people overseas to volunteer, build cultural understudying, transform their own lives and help change the world. There are year-round volunteer and leadership trips for youth and schools.

Thank you for this post. I am thrilled to me making the same trip to Kenya with my daughter, my sister, and several other adult and youth members of Girl Guides of Canada next summer. I expect it will be a life changing experience with the goal of empowering our youth to make a difference in their community, be it their school, neighborhood, city or globally. We all need to take action for a better world.
