The Great Lakes of the United States contain a whopping 21% of the world’s surface freshwater. But whose responsibility is it to manage this abundant and hotly contested resource? Beyond just lakes, students dive into the use and misuse of water resources in rivers, creeks, aquifers, and ponds, meeting with experts and stakeholders from all walks of life.

“[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
“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
“The team at Envoys did their very best to ensure that the the “i’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed.” The staff was also quick to respond to any and all questions that arose prior, during and after the trip. My husband and I greatly appreciated the time Envoys took to provide preparation tips as well the planned activity schedules to help make our child’s South African trip a safe and memorable adventure.”— Regina J. , Parent, Dalton South Africa 2014
