This program examines the ‘ground-reality’ of immigration within the United States, providing opportunities for students to seek out the truths that exist outside of our urban bubbles. We will aim to recognize how the strands of the American story are woven by a variety of people within and beyond their borders.

“Many student groups participate in ‘Voluntourism’. This trip did not attempt that, but rather funneled the collective energy of each member into meaningful, mutually beneficial cultural interactions. Thank you so much for this unforgettable and transformational experience.”— Altana , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
“[Envoys] knows kids extremely well…they know how to be cool with them while still commanding authority and establishing ground rules…I was incredibly impressed with the protocols established and put in place by Envoys.”— Micah M. , Traveling Faculty, Friends Seminary Peru 2015
“Every single person working for Envoys is excellent and committed to the kids and their experience, not just during the trip, but before and after. We would recommend Envoys to anyone looking for a high quality and enriching summer experience.”— Amy G. , Parent, Envoys Malawi 2014 & 2015
