Young people do have the power to change the world. As UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon once explained his faith in youth saying “Young people are gifted with open minds… and are bringing their energy, ideas and courage to some of the most complex and important challenges facing the human family. They often understand better than older generations that we can transcend our religious and cultural differences in order to reach our shared goals.”
The best message we can tell our kids is to believe, “You can”. We want to help them harness the power of their ideas, because when they do, they will tap into their biggest, boldest dreams—and transform our world for the better. We believe service learning is a powerful to shape tomorrow’s leader, which teach students to use academic knowledge and skills to address community needs. When kids travel with us, they learn their awesome power to make a positive difference.
We have partnered with several organizations across 20+ countries that bring service learning to schools across the globe. Our travel programs provide opportunities to youth to take action on pressing global issues such as gender equality, clean water and sanitation, quality education, poverty, hunger and much more.
We believe good starts young. It is our endeavor to make sure youth around the country have the opportunity to learn leadership, critical thinking and collaboration skills; build character and confidence; achieve academic success; and become more engaged citizens.
Let’s encourage young people and give them the tools they need to succeed!
