Call for Nominations and Applications!

Do you know an exceptional student (between the ages of 14 and 21) who would benefit from a unique travel and leadership program? If so, or that's you, I encourage you to apply for the Rim To River Expedition! This trip will be from July 6 to July 17 next summer and the deadline for applications is November 15th.

Global Explorers is now accepting applications through Monday, November 15 for the 2011 Leading the Way Rim to River expedition. You’ll spend the first 5 days engaging in service and experiencing the vast culture of the area on the South Rim of the Canyon. You’ll spend the next 5 days on the upper half of the world-renowned Colorado River, where your team will raft exhilarating whitewater, float through calm stretches and journey by foot through slot canyons.

I worked with Global Explorers to develop the Leading the Way program to bring together blind and sighted individuals for a life-changing experience. Leading the Way teaches unparalleled leadership skills; develops confidence, independence, self-awareness, and curiosity about the world in participants; and equips participants with the tools they need to step up and make a difference in the world.
