Description

The absolute best way to gain a broader perspective in life is to travel. Travel in a way that stretches you to observe and be a part of how another part of the world lives. Our Go Across Travel team in Panamá has designed this program with high school students in mind. We will introduce you to areas of the world that will undoubtely make you think and reflect. We will introduce you to people that have overcome great adversity in spite of their social and financial demographic. We think Panamá is one of the coolest, most diverse places in the world! We know Panamá will surprise you with it's diversity and juxtapose of history and people. This 12-day discovery program is the perfect amount of time to start to understand a new country, have fun and plant the seed for your future travel dreams. We hope we are part of assisting you in becoming a global citizen. A citizen that reflects, asks questions and searches for a deeper understanding about other cultures, beliefs and overall way of life.

If you come between March & May you can do this too! This is Skye, Tom and Saúl in La Loma ( where the home stay in a small village portion of our program is! )
