On an RLT summer community service program, you may find yourself floating the ocean tides replanting coral reefs in Bonaire or the Keys, building a school or orphanage in the shadow of the Himalayas in Ladakh, India, or face to face with a wolf, aiding conservation efforts in a sanctuary with the sole mission of caring for these often misunderstood creatures.
We define global service as a community-driven experience that applies structured, critically reflective practices to better understand the world; self; culture; human dignity; positionality; socio-economic, political, and environmental issues; power relations; and social responsibility, in a global context. On The Road Less Traveled you will learn to travel (and, yes this is a skill that needs to be learned). And, wherever you go, we guarantee, you will be where help is wanted and where both the people and place can benefit from your presence.
The things I know are not the ones I have heard of or read, but the things I have lived, experienced and felt.
