Experience a different side of the United States and learn about the culture and traditions of the South West.
Envoys has partnered with community schools in Tucson, Arizona to set up an amazing opportunity to experience a different side of the United States. Working hand-in-hand with Native-Americans and Latinos coming from economically challenging communities, Envoys participants will participate in a service project proposed by the school administrators to improve the community livelihood.
Potential program themes
“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
“I could not have been more satisfied with the performance of Envoys throughout the entire process of planning and executing this trip. All Envoys staff demonstrated the utmost professionalism and dedication, as well as knowledge and competence. I am so glad that [we] chose to partner with Envoys!”— Rick S. , Traveling Faculty, Hingham Japan 2015
“It was not only the good times with our friends or the relationships we built but how we were after we came back, returning to this agitated society with a new view of ourselves and not just our impact on the world, but the world’s impact on us.”— Gabriela , Student, Deerfield Colombia 2014
