In an age of Facebook, we are offering an opportunity for face-to-face interaction.
In a culture of perpetual selfies, we want our student travelers to unplug and connect in a deeper and more meaningful way with their traveling peers and the communities they come to know and serve.
Tread Light Travels objective is that your students come back transformed by their experience and feeling gratitude for what they have.
Break the barrier of misconception and judgment referent to other cultures. It is time to expand one’s horizons and engage in the world. As a global society, it is important that tomorrow’s leaders are academically well educated and engaging conversationalists to a broader audience.
No classroom or National Geographic magazine can simulate the tangibility of first-hand experience of being immersed in another culture. The uniqueness of smells, of food, of language, of dressing and behaving cannot be replicated in a schoolroom—it has to be experienced in its natural environment.
Your institution and Tread Light Travels are partners in designing the trip. Together we will look at your goals and students’ interests you have for your students and we will design a trip to match it. Our team will advise you in what is possible and make recommendations so your trip is successful. We will design the whole trip together with you, from the moment our guide picks you up from the destination airport till he delivers you back.
Our trips include everything you may need:
- Translator (whenever needed)
- Volunteer activity according to your objective,
- Leisure activities (physical, educational, cultural, adventurous, etc)
- And relaxing time, as desired.
