Social education through travel

Through educational tours, Global Engagement Trips, and student internships, we bring together international travelers and local entrepreneurs across Latin America to share in cultural and personal exchange. 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 clients — artisans, tradespeople, and food vendors in the Bucerias area. These are low-income but industrious people whose businesses represent rich local culture, economic growth, and personal achievement. Many clients have employed tools like microfinance or fair trade to meet their goals, making their experiences a testament to the power of these tools. Our clients have stories to share and we’re here to facilitate that conversation.

Meet the Artisans here to find out more about them and their businesses.


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

We’ve hosted groups from the following schools:
