What Does Global Minded Project Do?

GMP is a nonprofit organization founded in 2017 after watching the power of international travel develop confidence and a love for language and culture in a way that could be unattainable any other way. However, few can afford to travel even when the desire is present.  

As of October of 2017, we have led one international trip to Europe. We have already formed a traveling team for the summer of 2018 and are sending our first scholarship traveler, a teacher from The Project School.

We provide travel opportunities to students and adults in our local community through sponsorship , fundraisers and private commitments. In addition to travel opportunities, we work to hold community enriching events. Serving together as a team deepens the platform of trust that is necessary to foster a team mentality while on tour. This seamless transition is a result of intentional relationship building, journaling while on tour and our commitment to increasing independence and confidence in our travelers. Learn more about our upcoming travel opportunities and see first hand what it’s like to travel with the Global Minded Project.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, biogotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be aquired by vegetaging in one little corner of the earth all one’s life. “
— Mark Twain

Our Big Mission: To provide everyone an accelerated path to education and opportunity through travel


GMP also operates a local Outdoor Education Program that connects people of all ages in our community to the out of doors in our community and surrounding communities. This division of our project is the springboard for our service projects that happen locally and throughout the world.

GMP offers deeper education through language immersion programs that run during the summer months.
