Planned Daily Excursions
Treks through epic peaks, meetings with local advocacy groups, comfortable homestays, and delicious local dishes…all of these daily details are thoughtfully organized for you by our experienced program leaders.
Our programs focus on the different issues facing each region we travel to. We facilitate meaningful discussions and workshops that will challenge you to think critically about what it means to truly make a difference.
Our teams eat local food, use local transport, learn the local language, and even live in homestays. We believe that immersion builds cultural competency and empathy – the key qualities in all global citizens.
