TAKE ACTION

We help students grow their leadership skills by providing them with immersive environmental education and intercultural exchange between the US and Latin America.

At the same time we provide schools with additional capacity to enhance global citizenship education through our four pillars.

Intercultural Exchange

Students in California travel to Ecuador and Guatemala each year to work alongside their peers, while Latin American high schoolers visit the Bay Area to learn more about local student-led efforts.

 
 

A JOURNEY THAT IGNITES LIFE LONG LEADERSHIP

Students connect with local and international peers through the intercultural exchange to support each other in addressing environmental issues in their communities. Together they work on community projects that help them share best practices and build lasting relationships.
