The experience will begin with one week in Chiang Mai where participants will focus on cultural awareness and personal challenge through market explorations, rock climbing, trekking, kayaking, cave exploration and a silent meditation retreat.

From Chiang Mai students will travel to Mae Hong Son and the Huay Puling District to live, work and learn alongside the Karen ethnic minority communities in the Thai-Burmese border region. Students will live in homestays, hike trade routes, meet with village elders and participate in two day local craft apprenticeship. The rural villages provide an incredible opportunity to observe a community that works together to share resources, maintain sustainable agriculture practices, and preserve traditions. These indigenous communities face incredible challenges in a quickly developing country and students will begin to formulate new ideas and innovative strategies for approaching community and global issues.

The program will conclude in Bangkok where students will explore issues of development and observe the effects of rapid economic and infrastructure growth. Participants will discover Bangkok’s rich history, cultural diversity, and most famous landmarks.
