The world today is driven by an engine fueled by globalization. Opportunities to excel in life exist both at home and abroad, in cities and countries across the globe. Access to the world is an invaluable and oftentimes unattainable privilege. ProjectIcarus provides a path to global citizenship for kids who need it most.
Our goal is to demonstrate both the real and intrinsic value of world travel by immersing kids from low-income families in educational tours and community service trips around the globe. These first-hand experiences help students gain an understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity, which will enrich their lives both inside and outside of the classroom.
