Programs Designed for You

We design our service, adventure, and education programs for students of all types. While we remain true to our “rustic” identity and believe in taking students to places that tourists never see, we have a full range of experiences for the first-time traveler to the off-the-beaten-path explorer. Choose your program personality and start exploring.

Decades of Experience and Our On the Ground Staff

From major cities to remote villages, our staff members come from all over the world. Each with a unique skill-set, they share a dedication to providing exceptional experiences for our students.

Service and Adventure Blend to Create Powerful Experiences

We believe that volunteer and travel experiences have the power to positively shape the lives of our students while also benefiting the communities in which we work.

An Unparalleled Commitment to Safety

We take safety very seriously. We employ a full time Safety and Risk Management Director and have implemented a comprehensive three tiered system for controlling risk at all levels of our operations.
