Brief Description

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 non-profit organization committed to sustainable tourism and responsible global citizenship.

Developed in partnership with world-renowned blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, Global Explorers' Leading the Way program is our only individual enrollment program. Students of all physical abilities between the ages of 14 and 21 are welcome to apply. Leading the Way integrates science, service, leadership, and culture. Each expedition involves preparatory curriculum prior to travel and a service leadership project after travel. By making necessary accommodations and focusing on what students can do, the program challenges and prepares students to act on the passions they discover. Students set new goals and recognize the value of teamwork. Through their unique stories, each team helps to spread messages of hope and inspiration.
