Join our first Getaway Benefit Dinner!

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected and we experience an era of unprecedented world challenges, it is imperative for our youth to be aware of how they are interrelated with people in other parts of the world. At Getaway Growth, we believe enriching opportunities such as transformative travel and experiential learning prepare students to develop the nuance and understanding needed for real-world interactions and become global leaders of tomorrow. Too often underrepresented communities face insurmountable obstacles in participating in these enriching experiences. It is our mission to remove barriers and facilitate access to international travel for underserved youth in the United States by developing and providing fully-funded programs for our student cohort, helping expand their mindset of possibilities and see the many opportunities and paths available to them. 

Since our founding in 2021, Getaway Growth has partnered with non-profit organizations and community leaders in Kenya to organize diverse, equitable, and transformative travel experiences for our student cohort. This summer our cohort of 10, five from the United States and five from the host country, participated in a two-week educational program exploring intercultural competence, ethical service learning, and environmental stewardship. See Highlights from our Summer 2022 Kenya Program.

Getaway Growth is thrilled to continue the program next year and strives to continue expanding our program types and student impact. In order to do this, we rely on the generosity of individuals, corporate citizens and businesses for support.  Hear from the students themselves about their life-changing trip in the video below. 

We welcome you to attend Getaway to Kenya, our first Benefit Dinner! 100% of proceeds will go directly towards sponsoring our 2023 student cohort. Your presence will be greatly appreciated and we can’t wait to have you join us!
