Week in Haiti

Be Like Brit calls those who visit the orphanage "Britsionarys". Our Britsionary Program was created to provide an opportunity for volunteers to gain a better understanding of global partnerships and cultures. Short-term Britsionary groups take a 1 week service trip to the Be Like Brit Orphanage in Haiti, to help with youth and community outreach projects and immerse themselves in the beautiful Haitian culture.

This Program has a separate application and needs to be pre-approved before coming to BLB. If you have ambitions of being a long term Britsionary, learn more by clicking here.
