Meet the Team

Our vision is to change lives and impact the world through experiential global learning, teacher exchanges, and training.

Our world is crying out for solutions to improve and change the lives of our future generations by implementing new ideas and solutions that work. We work closely with our partners to achieve success, and we are committed to making a difference in our world. We also believe that by focusing on education and workforce solutions we’re going to observe the most substantial and long term impacts that will benefit society many years in the future. I often share these important truths with others,”never build a new innovation and put it into an old context,” and “if you don’t do anything, I can promise you that nothing will ever happen.” Help us in positively changing and impacting the world together.
