"I will NEVER forget the way I felt and the amazing friends that I have made. I got to gain a new perspective on life and am filled with so much more gratitude and compassion in my heart and mind. Literally this is the best decision I have made in my life. I am so excited to start living my life better and see everything in a new way.” - Mackenzie, youth participant

PARENTS MOROCCO TRIP
Morocco, Sahara Desert
"First of all, many thanks for providing the opportunity for our son to participate in the expedition through Williamsburg Adventures. From all that we've heard, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. He came home beyond excited and motivated with new ideas about how he wants to move forward in his education and life in general which is just fantastic!
Our biggest hope in sending him [on a trip] was that he would be inspired by great mentors and leaders and catch a vision of his own potential for doing good in the world. He was absolutely inspired by [Williamsburg Adventures mentors]... and was so excited about the work he was involved in that he is ready to pack up and move right now! ... We have loved hearing him talk about his experiences and particularly hearing how the mentoring that took place along with those experiences guided his learning and perspective on what he was doing and why. We have a niece who is quite involved in a youth humanitarian program in Ghana that earlier this year [our son] had been interested in participating in, but we felt that it lacked the backbone we saw in Williamsburg's program with its focus on principles. We are so pleased that he has been introduced to these important principles through his experience. What a wonderful program!
We were also excited to hear about the friendships that he made on the expedition. It sounds like you had a fantastic group of students and adults -- the kind of people that we hoped he would meet. -- Jane, mother of participant

What's Included in Our Trips?
Online Classes & Academic Credit
For select expeditions, there will be online classes before the trip, as well as academic credit through Williamsburg Learning schools.
Devotionals, Solo Time and More
Beyond the transactional experience of most trips, where leaders move participants from place to place, we provide space for daily discussions, devotionals, solo time, leadership activities and more.
Our leaders are called 'mentors' because they do more than regular trip guides -- they inspire, challenge, listen to, and guide you as you learn how to lead yourself and others.
