Social education through travel

Through educational tours, Global Engagement Trips, and internships, we bring international travelers and local entrepreneurs together to share in cultural and personal exchange. Based in Mexico, our programs foster cross-cultural relationships that are mutually beneficial and have lasting social impact.

PROGRESS, NOT POVERTY

We empower by recognizing the dignity and resourcefulness of our community members

AWARENESS IGNITES ACTION

Delve deeper into the social sphere with these books, TED Talks, podcasts, and other resources 

EXPLORE OUR COMMUNITY

Our work starts with our local partners — artisans, tradespeople, and entrepreneurs in Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit area. These are industrious people whose businesses represent rich local culture, economic growth, and personal achievement.  Our partners have stories to share and we’re here to facilitate that conversation.

While we are beginning to offer Global Engagement Trips in new countries, our home community is Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico.  This is where our office is, where we have our deepest connections, and where most of our programming takes place.  Learn more about Bucerias and the region here!
