Precious Journeys® College Edition is about the next steps for our future leaders as they begin to discover their own voices, talents and independent forms of expression. These adventures allow young adults to continue to explore while still with their families, and, at the same time, begin to use the knowledge and skills they have gained up to this point.
Just as Precious Journeys® introduced younger children to new places, people and experiences that they have not likely encountered before such as a hands-on peanut butter workshop in Guatemala, Precious Journeys® College Edition presents young adults with opportunities to investigate more complex interests such as the global art form of graffiti as expressed in Buenos Aires, Colombia and elsewhere; or on a multi-day trek walk to connect with Australia’s amazing wilderness; or a climb up 750 steps of Sri Lanka’s 12th-century Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
Precious Journeys® College Edition challenges tomorrow’s leaders to make a difference as they prepare for college, careers and future lives.
