“A Journey for a Lifetime is truly understating what this experience will bring. Everyone must take this journey! It’s one of the biggest gifts you could expose your child to. The chaperones are tried, tested, full of passion, protective, grounded and 100% true intentioned! There couldn’t be better people to do this with!” Kelly (Maelle’s mom).
“This has truly been the most amazing and unforgettable experience of my life. Talking about it with family and friends has also made me recall the entire journey start to finish and all I can do is smile. This adventure has changed my way of life, my global perspective, and who I am as a person. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am so grateful to your organization for shaping the person I will grow up to be. From the bottom of my heart, thank you”. Max.
