travel package Overview

How do we travel? How do we ensure that we and the communities we visit are positively impacted by the exchange that travel brings?

During your journey, you will learn about a model for community development, education, and international partnership rarely practiced in the world. You will dive deep into complex Guatemalan history. You will learn what it means to equitably exchange ideas between people of different contexts. And you will be introduced to some of the most amazing green building ideas and structures in the world.
