JetBlue Wants To Send You on a Free Volunteer Trip To a Mystery Location
JetBlue wants to give you and a friend a free trip to anywhere in the world — the catch is, you don’t get to choose where. As part of its November “Jetblue for Good Month,” the airline is sending 50 people on a free trip, in exchange for doing volunteer work while you’re there. Work will be focused on youth and education, community, and the environment. The destination — called “Destination Good” — is secret until the morning of departure. So if you’re a picky traveler, or you can’t live without a fixed itinerary, you might want to skip this one.
Icema Gibbs, JetBlue’s director of corporate social responsibility, said in a statement, “We chose Destination Good as this year’s location to reinforce that doing good can happen anywhere and anytime — be it in the air, on the ground, or even in your neighborhood.” While JetBlue hasn’t finalized the itinerary, you can expect to participate in a variety of service activities, ranging from helping in local schools to conducting beach cleanups.
The flight departs on November 27th from New York’s JFK airport, and returns on November 30th. To apply, you must fill out a survey about your prior volunteer experience and explain why giving back is important to you. Applications can be submitted online, or at pop-up kiosks that will open across New York City and Los Angeles from October 16th to 26th.
