Guided Off-the-Beaten Path Adventure
Our local Program Leaders help you take the road less travelled, climb to new heights, connect with real people, and explore the nooks and crannies of a new place.
Genuine Cultural Immersion
Get off the tourist trail and immerse yourself in the local culture. Practice the local language, try that delicious local dish, and make lifelong friends with your family homestay.
Meaningful Community Engagement
Instead of feel-good volunteer projects that don’t make an impact, we get involved in community-led initiatives and learn how to make an impact with our local partners.
Real Hands-on Learning
Join farmers in their fields, meet activists in the streets, and learn new ways of doing things from local organizations. Roll up your sleeves and come find out just how much you’re capable of doing.
