The scope of the nonprofit’s mission is worldwide, with an emphasis on acting at the local level with community-based support for after school programs, children’s hospitals, and other projects serving children in Jeunesse markets around the world.

The company has led annual Bringing Hope service and cultural immersion trips to the villages in China and Kenya where company officials and Distributors were able to see the difference these projects are making first-hand and experience what it’s like to live a day in the life of the villagers. Additional Bringing Hope trips to the villages in Kenya and Ecuador are planned for 2017.
