We’re sparking a movement of socially conscious and globally active backpacktivists. Wanna join?

Operation Groundswell organizes intimate, immersive, and educational travel experiences that tangibly affect the lives of our participants and the communities we visit. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to creating financially accessible programs that blend responsible volunteering, cross-cultural education, personal development, and adventure. We also like long walks on the beach.
