    We are a free education center & sustainable development project creating opportunities for ecologically viable social enterprises. We offer an international experiential leadership program where we work together with locals in addressing critical global issues, such as waste, poverty & education.

    Spend four weeks volunteering and exploring Cambodia. Gain life skills, learn sustainable development practices, explore yourself and your passions while on a guided adventure in a foreign land. On this trip, you will develop your skills to help you be a self-aware individual, a strong team asset and build your confidence in where you can excel professionally while pursuing a path in your life that brings you fulfillment.

    You will embark on this transformational experience with guides that have lived abroad, speak Khmer/Thai and have made lasting, sustainable impacts in the country. You can expand your life resume with lessons in eco building, learn about building with recycled materials, be a part of implementing a trash system while providing free education to incredibly grateful children, contemplate inner peace in a Buddhist meditation retreat, opportunities for Khmer cooking classes, Yoga/meditation/fitness regimens, a perma-culture workshop, and jungle conservation. We will explore secret waterfalls, soak in hot springs, experience ancient Angkor Wat, spend time with an elephant being rehabilitated to go into the wild and make sustainable contributions within two amazing free education centers. Join us on a Cambodian journey for a pivotal summer abroad!

    We understand that there are many things to contemplate about the world and how one may want to have their influence felt within it, it can be confusing! Knowing how to embark on that path right out of high school is near impossible! We are here to offer you an experience that can help shape the rest of your life. We want to help you to be your potential, share ideas and concepts from people who are living their lives in a fulfilling way while making long-term sustainable contributions to the well-being of our world.

    Join a gratifying, life enriching journey with experienced humanitarians that can share their experience and open your eyes to the many ways to find your passion in life.

    We also offer custom group adventures for groups of 8-15. You can receive internship credits for college.
