Go beyond the headlines and experience the people, wildlife, and wonders of the “Warm Heart of Africa”.
This landlocked nation is home to some 15 million people and a wide array of wildlife. Our programs in Malawi have been designed to educate students on vital issues affecting the world today and is based on Future Earth’s model of sustainable development and environmental conservation. It provides an all-encompassing overview of development that gives students a ‘passport for life,’ including workshops on Wildlife, Environmental Conservation, Healthcare, Education and Fair Trade. The studies take place in an environment that is hands-on and participatory, encouraging students to actively learn and put their classroom lessons into a practical context. The experiences and knowledge gained will provide students with a passport to a wide variety of future careers alongside helping to develop the necessary skills to succeed, such as communication, adaptability and leadership. By linking groups together with on-the-ground ‘agents of change’ we promote transformational learning that sets students up to become successful and responsible citizens.
Potential Program Themes
“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
“The Envoys staff were very open about sharing their first-hand experiences, which was a game-changer in terms of learning about post-apartheid South Africa. Also, having everything planned to the T made me feel very safe. I knew that I was in good hands.”— Gio H. , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
“Envoys was at the top of their game from start to finish. What initially interested me was their focus on curriculum during pre-departure meetings and the program itself. Envoys cares deeply about the experience of the participants and faculty. [They] constantly ask for constructive criticism and make changes when necessary.”— Joe Vogel , Executive Director, Global Education Benchmark Group
