What We Do

We are changing the world one student at a time. We are creating the next generation of global citizens by exposing African-American youth to international travel, leadership development, entrepreneurship, education, careers, cultural immersion, and sports. 

Reflecting on the beginning of a dream. In just four years, Young People Travel Global Edge has evolved into an award-winning youth organization, expanding across three states. We've impacted 500 students through our learning journey programs, spanning years of summer camps. Our youth ambassadors have ventured to Europe, Dubai, Belize, South Africa, and we're now en route to Ghana. We celebrated our first graduating class, with students receiving full scholarships to HBCUs, including one who earned the prestigious Oprah Winfrey scholarship to Morehouse. As we embark on this journey, we are grateful for all the support we've received. Rest assured, we are committed to soaring higher and making a difference in students' lives worldwide. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey. Together, we will continue to inspire and empower young minds.
