Expeditions & Community Service Tours
This isn’t your average school trip.
Share the adventure of a lifetime with friends—all while giving back.
So what's an Expedition?
An Expedition is a school trip with more. More adventure, more giving back, more ownership from students and more planning and support for teachers.
on a 2-4 week journey through a developing country, our Expeditions inspire all kinds of things. A new perspective. Gratitude. Mindfulness. They also allow high school students to give back to a community abroad, through a rewarding project they help plan before they go.
