Since 1993, Dragons has pioneered expertly led, comprehensive travel experiences for high school, college, and adult participants. On course, participants learn by doing. They travel like locals, live with families, apprentice with artists, and learn from scholars, sages, and community leaders. They access phenomenal beauty, engage deeply with local communities, and ignite their curiosity.

Dragons believes that the experience of living in the world and connecting with an unfamiliar culture has something to teach everyone. They are dedicated to cross-cultural education because they believe that future leaders will be required to think beyond borders when considering the implications of resource scarcity on a global community. Their courses are designed to help develop the self-awareness and cross-cultural competencies to be active participants in this conversation. They see exceptional beauty in diversity and believe that the health of the planet can only be optimized when individual citizens are internally motivated to care for a global community. They canÕt predict exactly what skills will be needed to succeed in the future, but theyÕre willing to hedge their bets that a foreign language, well-worn passport__, and healthy dose of empathy will serve our world well.
