It opened my eyes to much more of the world and it was amazing. Honestly a trip that I will never forget.

Shannon Lacy, Peru/ Ecuador Participant

I loved climbing a mountain above Urubamba with my host brother to get the best view of town.  Fresh empanadas and cold sodas afterwards topped off the best day.

Global Works is….A little bit of everything, really.  Adventure tied with cultural immersion, traveling, and natural interactions.  Our trip really raised the bar for my future travels.
