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.
Become a Development Ambassador and support a project through the Rustic Pathways Foundation! If you were impacted by your service program and want to get involved with a global issue, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Students will receive coaching and earn swag when they reach fundraising benchmarks. Development Ambassadors will receive support to host fundraising events in their community. It is expected that Development Ambassadors actively participate in the Facebook group, work toward fundraising goals, and are a representative of the project they are supporting in their community.
