Travel That Makes a Difference

For many college students, study abroad is a special goal of their undergraduate years. Financially, the experience is often out of reach. What can you do? Take that trip you’ve been promising yourself – and help students achieve the international study opportunity they’ve been dreaming of. Participate in one of our upcoming educational travel tours, and $500 (tax-deductible) of your registration fee goes directly into our foundation’s study abroad scholarship fund to help our students live and learn in other countries. It’s a win-win – a curated travel experience for you, and a life-changing time for a student.

Why Community Travel?

It’s all the fun and culture of a study abroad experience without the coursework. Whether you never had the chance to study abroad yourself, you’ve done a whistle-stop tour but are looking for a deeper experience, or have simply been promising yourself some international travel, consider Japan. We’ve designed this trip with you in mind. Enjoy local food, special attractions and guided sightseeing, and the reassurance of a San Mateo travel ambassador and professional tour guide on the trip.
