Teacher-Led Trips in China
Rustic’s programs in China expose students to the wonders of this fascinating country. We’ve built partnerships with schools, non-governmental organizations, and conservation groups since opening China operations in 2007. Students venture from the big cities to explore, learn, and conduct service. They interact with members of our partner communities and leave with a better understanding of and appreciation for China and its culture.
Raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Amanda credits working in Switzerland and Colombia to kindling her love for travel, education, and cultural exchange. After graduating from Boston College’s history program, she led international groups on camping-based adventure tours across all of the “Lower 48” states, Canada and Alaska, eventually returning indoors to train leaders and manage operations. Amanda is thrilled to bring her six years of industry know-how, lifelong love of travel and zeal for cultivating authentic, enriching, and memorable experiences to Rustic Pathways’ Mongolia program as Country Director.
