Looking for a way to use your leftover vacation days before the end of the year and do good some good while you're at it? Lucky for you, The Village Experience—a program designed to introduce Westerners to other cultures and global issues through interactive cultural trips—still has one more trip to Haiti planned in 2012.

The trip, which runs from December 1 - 8, 2012, will take visitors on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the North Coast.

The journey kicks off with tour of Port-au-Prince and a city tour of Cap Haitien, before the first project day with Sonje Ayiti in Limonade, an organization that works to uplift the people of Haiti though education, economic development, and health promotion. Participants will also spend a day volunteering with GARR, a support group for refugees and repatriated persons. To cap off the trip, there will also be a relaxing beach day on the North Coast, including a boat ride to a sandbar for lunch, drinks, and conversation to reflect on the last few days.

The tour costs $2199 per person but includes hotel costs, most meals, tours and excursions.
