On behalf of my student travelers, thank you. Thank you for believing in student travel and changing lives. Thank you for believing in the potential for shifting world views and instilling confidence in these hard-working students who often don't have the same advantages others enjoy.

GOAL: Our goal is to travel as a group of 15 eager students and 2 dedicated school leaders. We seek to fund a scholarship program based on:
NEED: Last year, we had an amazing time in Spain. We look forward to another great trip to Puerto Rico this year. Our ongoing dilemma is the intense financial needs of our families vis a vis the costly endeavor of world travel. While a couple kids have the means to make routine payments while a few others work 1 or 2 jobs while attending school and even playing a sport or instrument, many in our school community are, essentially, excluded from the opportunity. Often, these are the kids who could benefit most from such an experience.
With this program goal, our annual need will cap at $51,750. This total reflects fully-funding 15 travelers. Any amount above this potentially opens up travel to additional students and teacher/parent chaperones traveling at no cost.
GIVING LEVELS: Whether it's $100 or $1000+, your organization's gift will help give a kid their wings!
HOW TO GIVE:
We are currently in the process of enabling electronic donations that do not include third party fees. Until then, a check, made payable to the school, is appreciated.
