Backpacking with a Purpose: Operation Groundswell

Operation Groundswell helps students backpack through the developing world in an affordable, accountable, and sustainable way. With a combination of service, independent travel, adventure, and integration, students are able to get the true travel experience (no touristy spots here!) . Travel to Central America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and more with a group of your peers on a life changing travel experience!

Operation Groundswell is a non-profit organization that offers travel and community service experiences around the world. We aim to build a community of “backpacktivists” that are socially, environmentally and politically aware of their impact in the communities they travel to and live in.

There are also travel coordination positions open for the summer of 2014. Check out the opportunities here!
