Volunteer Missions Trip to Orlando
Want an opportunity to serve on a mission trip in central Florida less than an hour from Disney World? The Domestic Global Village engages volunteer groups in local service projects with Habitat for Humanity Lake-Sumter County. Also known as “the DGV”, it is a unique hostel-like volunteer center near downtown Eustis, Florida. It houses 99 bunk beds, a media center, a game room, a commercial kitchen, bathhouses, and outdoor recreation courts. The facility’s main purpose is to provide volunteers a comfortable and fun place to stay while they work to support our mission of providing affordable housing in Lake and Sumter Counties and other community-based projects in the area. A core activity that is housed out of the facility is called Collegiate Challenge. Students from all over the nation come to Eustis to stay at the DGV and volunteer for Habitat of Lake-Sumter.
During their stay, they work on Preservation & Repair and Home Ownership projects. Students stay for about one week and pay a small weekly program fee that goes toward the work that they are doing in the community. We also use the DGV for other service-related projects. As an example, we will be partnering with another organization that will utilize the DGV to prepare and train interested volunteers in becoming disaster relief specialists through the Florida Disaster Reservist Program.
