A world ahead

Deep Cultural Immersion

Fellows gain a true local perspective and learn a new language during their eight-month stay with a vetted host-family in Brazil, Ecuador, India or Senegal. By staying longer and going deeper, our Fellows develop insights and skills that shape their character and guide their higher education.

Meaningful Apprenticeships

Fellows get first-hand experience and make an impact by working alongside community members in diverse apprenticeship sectors including environmental conservation, education, entrepreneurship, and health.

Leadership Training

Our learning model wraps coaching and curriculum around real-world experience — preparing young people in ways that classroom learning alone cannot. Our talented team leaders provide on-the-ground mentorship and support.
