For our Kenya Summer 2023 Program

Are you a student between the ages of 15-24? Are you interested in learning about and giving back to global communities? Are you interested in building lasting friendships through a life-changing trip? Then you’ve come to the right place, and we’re so glad you’re here!

Getaway Growth aims to open doors to international travel for youth in the US who may not otherwise have these opportunities. Our program is inclusive of all genders, races, religions, and other aspects of identity, and we look for students who respect the diversity, cultural differences, and identities of others. We support both our US students and local students from the host countries we visit. 

Our ultimate goal is to build tomorrow’s leaders by promoting confidence, creativity, and curiosity, and we encourage our students to reach for their greatest and wildest dreams. Please join us in a transformative intercultural competence and service learning journey. We look forward to hearing from you and considering your application!
