Our Purpose:

About us

Be Like Marco Polo

Marco Polo who was 17, embarked with his father and uncle on an epic journey to Asia. They traversed thousands of miles on horseback, mostly through uncharted deserts, over steep mountain passes, exposed to extreme weathers, to wild animals and very uncivilized tribesmen. It took the Polo's twenty years of exploration and five years to return home to Venice, Italy.

What importance can travel provide? Marco's written description of the Far East and its riches inspired both Magellan, who led the first circumnavigation of the globe, and Christopher Columbus to try and reach Asia by sea in a westward route. A heavily annotated copy of Polo's book was among the belongings of Columbus.

I invite any student with a "Marco Polo spirit" to travel with us for "one year" and live among unique cultures in ten communities on four continents.

Take the courage and unequaled decision to cast off into the unknown world.

The great Himalayas will mesmerize you in Darjeeling, India, Pokhara and Jomsom, Nepal.

A more subtle demonstration of the world’s grandeur is experiencing and living among people in their unique regions. Communities such as Varanasi, India, the Medina’s ( enclosed old cities within ancient walls) in Fez, Meknes, and Marrakesh, Morocco highlights how people have lived continuously for hundreds of years. To become a part of that community is most memorable and an appreciation as to how it’s citizens continue to live successfully.... [-]
