Everything we offer is designed for positive impact
Our mission is to help the world’s most impactful leaders transform themselves to reach the peak of their potential, rejuvenate their souls and minds, and become motivated from service. By bringing leaders on far away journeys to reconnect with themselves, nature, and the greater purpose of what it means to be human, the positive ripple effects are enormous. In addition to the emotional and spiritual transformations our participants experience, we also include selfless service activities within our Quests to give back to the communities and cultures that welcome us. Finally, woven into our business model are collaborations with two incredible foundations that are making a massive impact on the world (more info to your right)
Wellbeing of Children
The Contentment Foundation is dedicated to sharing humanity’s most effective and scientifically proven wellness practices with interested children and adults. For every Abroad Quest, we sponsor an underprivileged school to be trained on the Contentment Foundation's 4 Pillars of Wellbeing curriculum: Mindfulness, Balance, Service, and Self Curiosity. By running just 10 Abroad Quests per year, we will positively impact the lives of up to 10,000 children per year. The wellbeing of our global society starts with the wellbeing of our children, which is why our partnership with the Contentment Foundation is paramount to our social impact strategy.

Rights of Nature
Without nature, our company doesn't exist. One of the most valuable parts of the Abroad experience is reconnecting with the natural world in picturesque destinations. We also have eco-consciousness close to our heart and strive to implement sustainability in as many of our practices as possible. This is why we partnered with Euterra, an organization that recognizes that in order for us to survive as a species, our economic models need to exist within and nourish Earth's ecosystems. We accomplish this by making nature a 3% shareholder in our organization. By investing our dividends into the regeneration of nature, and giving a nature a voice, we can humbly appreciate mother earth for all she does to sustain us.
