Magazine Cover from Global Youth Connect depicting South African primary school students.‌Inkululeko and Global Youth Connect are proud to be collaborating on a new sort of travel engagement in Feb. 2016.

Between the two organizations, we've worked with hundreds of college students - and we're excited to continue our flagship programs with institutions like Syracuse University and The New School.

We've also made a strategic decision to begin offering programs to a market we haven't met historically: people in their mid-40s (and beyond) searching for a socially conscious international delegation made up of their contemporaries. It's part of what we're calling our "Young At Heart" program.

We're searching for people who wish to engage in overseas communities in mutually beneficial ways; for recent retirees looking for their next chapter; for people who desire to travel and learn about the world and themselves; for people who believe age is just a number; for people who believe one has just as much to contribute at 66 as one does at 26. We're looking for people who are, well, young at heart.

If you're in your mid-40s (or beyond), I really hope you consider joining us for this inaugural program Feb. 10 - 20, 2016 in Grahamstown, South Africa.

Or, if you know somebody you'd classify as "Young At Heart," please send them our way. For more information on the program, visit Global Youth Connect.
