Perhaps the only thing tied to my heart as tightly as my love of travel is my desire to make a difference in the world. And because of my work with Travel+SocialGood, I know I am not alone.
There is a growing movement of passionate individuals determined to transform our world into a better place, and to use travel as the catalyst to do so. A novel idea that almost seems too easy — I’ve learned that there is a way to impact the world through something so universally appealing as travel.
If you’ve ever had an idea about how you can make a difference in the world through travel, but didn’t know quite how to go about it, now is the time to make a plan. Hostelling International USA is launching an Explore the World travel scholarship and is offering $2,000 toward financing an international trip with an educational or service component integrated into the itinerary.
For all the changemakers with a love of travel, this is your chance to bring your vision to life.
