Global Nomads Canada will meet in Vancouver and embark on a journey that will challenge you physically, emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually. You’ll be amazed at your growth throughout the program as you overcome personal challenges, learn to work effectively within a community, and understand yourself as leaders within a global context.

During the 3 week journey across the majestic wilderness of British Columbia you will:

    • Rock climb and belay
    • Canoe and portage
    • Clamber through a high ropes course
    • Backpack on an 8-day mountain trek
    • Navigate & lead sections of the trek
    • Spend a night alone in the middle of the mountains
    • Learn about indigenous cultures of British Columbia
    • Participate in a service learning project
    • Engage in global issues dialogues

This incredible program will begin at the fun and charming Educo site, where you will take part in various personal and community challenges in order to learn about yourself and fellow participants as you begin to grow as a community of Global Nomads. During the first few days of challenges, high-ropes, and wall climbing, you will focus on developing self-awareness and teamwork before embarking on an adventure of a lifetime. You will also have the chance to learn about indigenous beliefs and traditions.

Next, you will backpack on an 8-day mountain trek across stunning and challenging terrain. This part of the trip will include learning navigation skills, leadership practice and personal discovery as you witness breathtaking natural scenery. This experience will culminate in spending a night alone in the wilderness.

For the final part of the program, you will return to Vancouver to engage in a local service project and learn about another local community. The program will finish with a Global Citizenship Conference, allowing students from different backgrounds to share their views and insights into what it means to be a global citizen and with fresh inspiration attempt to determine what step to take next.
