  • Want to get more out of your exchange experience? Join other J-1 and F-1 exchange students and American high school students on a Greenheart Trip! This is not your average tourist trip. Here’s how we’re different:

    • Small and social: 20 participants per group maximum, everyone stays in communal lodging
    • Volunteering: Each group does unique volunteering opportunities that benefit the local community
    • Interactive: Learn from one another in hands-on workshops and activities that allow time for sharing cultures and discussing global engagement

    Come prepared to make lifelong friends from around the world!
