Traveling with us was just the beginning. As a Rustic Alum, you have unique experiences that will forever impact how you view and interact with the world. The time that you spent with us has given you a permanent place in our global family. Welcome to the Rustic Pathways Alumni Association!
Students and former students, who want to continue to have an impact, stay in touch, and engage in communities near and far. Through the Alumni Association you'll have access to exclusive internship and job opportunities, will be invited to alumni-only events, and can have a say in how we spread the Rustic energy.
