Global Family Travels – Expand Your Family Circle!
Global Family Travels’ mission is to Learn, Serve and Immerse, using travel as a means to build cultural bridges and to foster global citizens. In partnership with community-based organizations, Global Family Travels offers service learning tours for families which include a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, homestays and participation in local service projects aimed at improving the lives of people in the communities we visit.
Global Family Travels’ enriching tours offer both the visiting families and host community participants an opportunity to make a difference together, and to learn from each other in ways that will open their hearts and minds to a greater awareness that we are all connected.
At Global Family Travels, we believe the most powerful way to learn is through first-hand experience. We let the country and its people be your teachers. We supplement traveler’s experiences with reading lists, informal discussions, and a pre-trip orientation which includes information on the culture and history of your host country, helpful words and phrases and cultural “do’s and don’ts.”
Our trips bring families from different cultures together to learn from each other and to work side-by-side to effect positive change. As we strengthen our connection to the world around us and begin to see ourselves in others we can’t help but feel a deeper sense of responsibility for the impact of our actions. This lends itself to the goal at the heart of our company – for us all to become better global citizens. We are committed to our core values of social and environmental ethics, and it’s our belief the best way to foster these values in the next generations is to give them the gift of recognizing their place in the global community.
Global Family Travels’ tours offer plenty of opportunities to “do as the locals do,” and to become immersed in the local customs and culture of the communities we visit. Several tours offer home-stay programs, whereby you and your family will you learn what it means to be a local and understand the life of your host family.
Global Family Travels offers packaged tours or we can customize a tour to fit your family’s needs and interests at a destination of choice. In 2014, we are pleased to offer tours to China, India, Nicaragua and Turkey and will run them again in 2014.
