We are committed to making international travel and global learning inclusive, accessible and affordable. We believe that engaging in critical thinking and human rights work should not be limited to an elite few, rather pursued by all who possess the passion and commitment to learn, grow and build community. We are challenging stereotypes and diversifying the industry by providing university-level academic content, international experience and professional development to people from all backgrounds. We believe that everyone has something to learn and something to contribute to the world. Whether you are a babysitter or a retired teacher, an auto mechanic or majoring in mechanical engineering, a parent or a part-time student, our program is for you!*
