A life-changing experience 

Some say life changing experiences involve doing something that is dangerous, like swimming with crocodiles in Australia or drinking snake wine. Others would say a more meaningful and long lasting way to encounter a life-changing experience centers around serving others in real and tangible ways. InSite takes this route, creating ways to connect people across cultural, race, and social boundaries so that we can serve one another. 

InSite provides opportunities for students to discover more about themselves and the world around them. They take this new learning and apply it directly to what they face in the different cultural contexts and challenges faced. It sounds too simple to be true, but this is what creates meaning for us humans. We crave the need to be needed, to help, serve and experience the richness of connection with one another. When the students do this as a team, it bonds them for life. It’s an experience no one can take away or replace. It’s unique and special.

Parent Corner

InSite's application process invites parents to have an opportunity to speak with an InSite representative before students join the team. It's crucial for the students success to have the support from you. InSite aims at being transparent about in all aspects.

InSite has bimonthly emails, a FB group, and an optional what'app parent group.

On this website you can access our past field reports, financial reports and blogs of our current activities.

How can parent's be involved? 

Parents can be as involved as they desire. Some opt to have a minimal role which is to read the updates, support their student in his/her efforts to fundraise and be on the team. Other parents choose to be more active. Here's a short list of different ways parents have participated: 

  • Sponsored dessert nights with friends and family for student fundraising
  • Volunteered to help InSite staff run other fundraising events such as wine tasting, markets, and other special events.
  • Used work connections to connect InSite with social responsibility platforms for our work in South Africa. 
  • Traveled with us on the trips to South Africa as a volunteer.
  • Volunteered with various administrative needs
