Sit. Cycle. Walk. Join our trips any way you prefer! We are professional adventurers, our experience and knowledge mean that you can learn from the same outdoor experiences without sleeping in puddles, going without showers, or being famished alone in the wilderness – you know, unless that’s your thing! We go an average of 50 miles per day. It’s sustainable travel, and we “Leave No Trace” in the environments we go through. Our Adventure style isn’t just accessible travel, it’s ethical travel!
Education drives us! Take a summer course for college credit, or just participate in our General Curriculum, featuring some of the brightest minds in the world in their own hometowns! Traveling lends itself to robust Education. Get credit for it! Then apply that education to the work you do elsewhere on the trip!
Community brings everything together! After all, the most beautiful places aren’t nearly so beautiful without amazing friends. We party and discuss and work and sweat and laugh and cry and grow and develop together. It’s life lived deeply, richly, in pursuit of legitimate solutions to global crises, cultural issues, and personal dilemmas.
We do tons of volunteer service projects! Tons! That lends itself to doing other kinds of work in communities. Our work programs help you find work for pay throughout the route! Apply through us and we’ll work to get you into part-time or travel-conducive positions while you are traveling with us!
We Create a Culture of Intellectual Curiosity. We partner with universities to teach accredited (summer) courses meant to satisfy Core requirements at most liberal arts colleges. Professors that teach with us are some of the best in the nation; there isn’t a better academic environment for summer study. Plus, students indulge personal interests via The YP’s General Curriculum and Summer Work Program, each featuring some of the brightest minds in the world in their own hometowns!
We Create a Culture of Faith, Hope and Love. The YP is the ultimate platform for investigating, exploring and growing your faith. Explore community through service. Learn about and love other communities around your region, state, or nation! Engage local pastors and religious leaders as you hear from them in our Religious General Curriculum. And take one of our Bible or Ethics courses!
We can build your brand in a huge way! We can get you views and guarantee interactions. We also provide staffing – from some of the best universities in the country. Which means we also provide opportunities to get involved in creative philanthropic projects with us along the route. Our Adventure is your Opportunity!
Safely and Inexpensively travel through many of the most beautiful places on earth! You’re traveling with some of the most beautiful, intelligent, engaged, caring individuals in the world! And you’re throwing fundraiser parties! You won’t find this type of opportunity anywhere else. So come contribute!
