Direct beneficiaries per year: 327
Geographic areas served: United states, Cambodia, Tanzania, Nicaragua
Programs: Service learning travel opportunities to an orphanage in Cambodia, a school for children with special needs in Nicaragua and a school and orphanage in Tanzania. We provide this experience for students ages 12-16 from the United States. We are based out of Vail, Colorado. We want to help create global-minded future leaders. We focus on promoting character and integrity among teenagers. Our students commit to a seven month long process where they study the language, history, politics, religion and traditions of each country. They commit to fundraising to offset the costs of their trip and must submit a fundraising plan upon applying to be considered. They must also commit to a behavioral contract and volunteer a set number of hours within their own communities.
