All journeys begin with a single step.

GO ED is a study abroad program that partners with international relief and development organizations across the globe. We believe that in order to end the spiritual and physical hunger plaguing the world, we must first begin by transforming ourselves.

The GO ED initiative provides opportunities for enquiring individuals to begin their personal quest of spiritual and personal transformation. Our vision is to own and ultimately end poverty, by transforming lives through cultural engagement. It is not our intention to merely provide temporary relief or transient awareness; rather, it’s our desire to leave a lasting legacy by preparing and empowering future generations to make meaningful contributions in the fight to stop all forms of human poverty.

We operate in some of the most poverty-stricken regions of the world, firm in our belief that light, beauty and hope continue to thrive in these hard places, and that they offer profound lessons to those who are willing to learn.

Program Summary: 

Students take four 3-credit classes (2 classes at a time, spread over a two-week period) and participate in a 4-week field-work practicum project.
