Your Journey Begins Here
Celebrating the natural world. The journey over the destination. The group. Farmer tans & strong arms. The humor of stumbling your way through a second language. Spontaneous dance parties. The individual. The joy that resides in serving others. We are Global Routes.

My Global Routes trip was one of the most outstanding experiences of my life. I realized how much of an impact traveling and cultural immersion has on one’s character, and that this impact is one that should be sought out by everyone. My trip leaders were helpful, inspiring, interesting, and outstanding mentors and friends.

My daughter returned with much greater awareness, introspection and maturity. I highly recommend this program on every level. The leaders and the directors are truly outstanding!
Amy, (Parent) St. Vincent
Global Routes gave me an amazing experience that put me far out of my comfort zone in the best way. I learned about new cultures and how better to interact and connect with a huge variety of people. I look forward to continue using what I learned on my trip anywhere I go for the rest of my life.
