Based in Pennsylvania, A Broader View was founded in 2007 by Oliver and Sarah Ehlers. Having worked in the travel business for years arranging individual and group tours, the duo decided to extend their services to include volunteering abroad. During a trip to Chile, they were faced with the need orphanages, schools, and hospitals had for outside help; not long after, Oliver and Sarah founded A Broader View to address issues like these worldwide.

We wanted to give you a deeper understanding of what this nonprofit organization does, what you can expect as a volunteer, and more—so without further ado, we bring you this interview with Sarah Ehlers. Enjoy!
