Our Mission

Pivotal Directions seeks to transform the lives of youth through character and leadership development, engaging students in the service-learning process throughout the world. Our aim is to heighten the level of discussion and learning that revolves around the act of serving those in need, ultimately raising the quality of personal character and leadership. Pivotal Directions provides an adventure course in personal and team leadership in international and domestic impoverished areas, as well as local leadership training that focus on personal growth and the importance of servant leadership.

Who We Are

Millions of people suffer every year because they don’t have the most basic necessities. We are committed to be agents of change while also teaching our volunteers about selfless leadership.

We have a simple approach: to provide future leaders pivotal moments in serving those in need. Pivotal Directions aims to inspire its students to become globally aware servant leaders capable of stepping out of their comfort zones to reach out a helping hand. Pivotal Directions doesn’t just assist the marginalized, we teach the youth of our society the importance of doing what they can, in all areas of life, to model citizenship and selfless service.

Pivotal Directions provides experiential learning opportunities through international volunteer service for teens and adults, and middle school camps.

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is! -Anne Frank
