Workshop: Making Travel Transformative

April 30th, 2014 @ 9:00am

Some travel seminars go beyond education to truly transformative experiences, ones that affect participants for years. Transformative travel shapes the way participants think about themselves, their world and ultimately affects their actions as well.

I cherish how [a Plowshares Institute travel seminar to China] changed my life. I see the world differently.
