GLOBAL COMMUNITY PHILOSOPHY
Global CommUnity itineraries are created with a focus on four key elements:
Learn: It is through understanding each other that we learn to cooperate. As we seek to learn the mindset of another culture, we explore their history, arts and science, industry and customs. This process is much deeper than social manners. It is about understanding how they see the world. This is why we provide you with pre-trip engagement materials that include books, movies, music and recipes, so your cultural immersion begins before you start your journey.
Experience: Touch, taste and observe. Our itineraries involve meaningful and age-appropriate cultural immersion. We will show you the history and arts, take you to see economic enterprises that are essential to that culture, and expose you to their spiritual practices or customs.
Relate: When you meet someone and personalize an experience with a name and a story, a “foreigner” becomes a friend. Global CommUnity itineraries involve great opportunities to mix with the locals, both people and animal life.
Serve: Global CommUnity we believe that the best way to “help” another human is through understanding. By understanding another’s mindset or world-view we can begin to cooperate and enrich our local communities and our shared Global CommUnity. Each of our Global CommUnity itineraries offers a meaningful give-back experience. Through these experiences we seek to offer our clients opportunities to learn how other cultures are healing wounds, solving social issues or renewing natural resources. We broaden our world view as we see unique ways to problem solve, share an experience and lend a hand.
MORE ABOUT CULTURAL RENEWAL OPPORTUNITIES
At Global CommUnity we understand the value of truly immersing yourself in a culture and community. This is why we encourage our families to engage in the cultural renewal opportunities offered in our itineraries. These unique experiences allow you to better understand a community by seeing and participating in their efforts to renew and restore places, culture, economics and ecosystems. Our hope is that our children will learn that there are many ways to solve social, ecologic and economic issues in a community. No one solution is right; through the mutual exchange of ideas we grow in respect for others and are inspired to return home to our own communities and contribute to their renewal.
Our cultural renewal opportunities allow families to actively engage in a variety of philanthropic experiences. In some cases, where organizations are not able to facilitate an active role for families, we offer clients the opportunity to tour the organization, learn about the processes of restoration and support them financially.
