CHANGING LIVES THROUGH SERVICE
Much like EFY, Humanitarian Experience for Youth (H.E.F.Y.) offers an amazing summer program for LDS teens focused on spiritual growth and development. However, Humanitarian Experience goes far beyond EFY by bringing LDS teens to poverty stricken areas of the world to build classrooms, homes, orphanages, health clinics, and other beneficial facilities. Think of Humanitarian Experience as an advanced EFY program with international travel and service opportunities. If you liked EFY, and you're ready for a whole new level of testimony building experiences, then you're ready for H.E.F.Y.
