Getting Started

Not only does fundraising help your students pay for their travel experience, but it is a great way to get parents involved, build support in the community, and improve students' leadership skills. Giving your students an opportunity to work together toward a common goal will help them develop relationships with each other prior to travel, and create a greater sense of satisfaction and ownership of their travel experiences!
