Our carbon commitment

We’re going one step further than becoming a carbon negative organisation. From 2023, everything we do, or our participants do, when taking part in our programmes, will be offset through certified initiatives at home in the UK. 

We develop Global Citizens

You’ll get real, in-the-field experience of solving problems, engaging with new communities and understandings of different cultures and people. At the end of your journey with us, you’ll have transformed your outlook on the world, and gained irreplaceable transferable skills – and, of course, friendships for life.
