The Cultural + Community Outreach (CCO) Program is designed to encourage transformative learning and expand global awareness by bringing minority travelers on a meaningful mission. Our CCO Program is an international and/or domestic trip that includes a volunteer project and a cultural immersion experience. The program will cover some or all of the following components:
- Learn about the local people, culture and food
- Volunteer within the community and make an impact
- Participate in local activities and tours
- Explore historic sites in different states and/or countries
- Build new and lasting relationships with your travel partners
What makes us different
We would like to bring a different perspective to “travel” by serving a purpose on our trips. Our program is created for minorities between the ages of 20-35 (including all underrepresented ethnicities). We believe travel provides important educational and cultural experiences, which builds knowledge that isn’t provided in classrooms and corporate environments. Transformative learning is what shapes a person’s judgment and opinion. This type of learning is only found through experiences and creates a huge impact or “paradigm shift” in a person’s life.
It’s fun to see the Eiffel Tower or Taj Mahal, but we want minority travelers to be exposed to a more authentic experience by being culturally immersed. Not only is it rewarding to visit new countries, but being able to learn from cultural differences and give back to society will help increase global awareness.
