Journey Beyond is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to eliminate generational poverty by teaching global competence to promising youth with limited financial resources. We build global leaders who, in turn, disrupt poverty.
Journey Beyond has teamed up with Lexington Park Library to launch the "Voyager Series". A series of interactive workshops and activities that teach about the importance and applications of global education and civic engagement.
The Voyager Series kicks off during International Education Week where participants will:
1) Learn why travel serves themselves, the community, & the world-at-large
2) Discover the world using virtual reality (Google Expeditions)
3) Gain resources to scholarships, study abroad, free foreign language learning, & more
4) Trivia on what Beyonce, Waka Flaka, & so many pop stars have in common - world travel
