A trip of a lifetime, a deeper confidence, and memories that will last forever are never a waste of time and investment.

Our international trips are really something special. Work to grow personal confidence and your love of other cultures all while making memories that will last a lifetime! Often our partner and guide for our trips abroad is Education First. EF has been leading education trips for over 50 years. Their safety and cultural priorities make them the best choice for GMP.


step One: Attend An Info session

We'll walk you through the whole process, introduce you to the educational tour company and outline the fundraiser schedule and the support processes.

Step two: Register

After you determine the year you want to be involved, we'll give you a link to sign up for the right trip. 

Step three: Community Events

You are not alone in preparing for the experience. You will have a whole community of people for support and inspiration.
