From the Fall 2010 issue of DVI Quarterly:
A Life-Changing Adventure Awaits You
Developed in partnership with world-renowned blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, the Global Explorers Leading the Way program joins blind, visually impaired, and sighted individuals between the ages of 14 and 21 for the educational experience of a lifetime. Leading the Way integrates science, service, leadership, and culture in a 3-phase program that includes pre-travel curriculum, a life-changing travel experience, and a follow-up service leadership project.
By making necessary accommodations and focusing on what participants can do, Leading the Way prepares young people to act on the passions they discover. Through their unique stories, the teams help spread messages of hope while breaking down barriers between those with and without disabilities.
Here at Global Explorers, we are passionate about providing the most comprehensive and genuine travel experience available to students and educators of all backgrounds and abilities.
We are a nonprofit organization committed to sustainable tourism and responsible global citizenship. Our staff is dedicated to providing unparalleled support throughout the entire program, from fundraising efforts to service leadership project implementation.
