Join me for a service-centered, educational, and transformational travel experience for high school students! I'm working with the Padma Organization again this year to offer this opportunity. On this trip, students are challenged to grow, to engage with new cultures, and to learn from trip leaders, local experts and community leaders. Padma offers opportunities to explore exotic places across the globe. While these trips are packed full of fun and adventure, they are not a vacation; they are an opportunity for personal growth and development. Whether through leadership training, introspective activities, meditation, language immersion, or deep diving into new skills, amazing science or conservation projects, Padma trips are designed to inspire and support students’ interests and academic/career/life goals. All this is accomplished with the guidance of experienced trip leaders, with a focus on risk management, and adherence to trip protocols and procedures.
