Greenheart Travel’s Mission

Greenheart Travel is personally invested in providing cultural immersion programs that change lives, advance careers and create leaders. We achieve this by partnering with organizations and governments overseas that empower their local communities through experiential learning and practical development. We provide others with the same positive travel experiences in which we ourselves engage. Through travel and cultural exchange, we help individuals reach their full potential, leading to a more tolerant, peaceful and environmentally sustainable world.

Greenheart Travel is a branch of Greenheart International, a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to connecting people and planet to create a more peaceful and sustainable global community.

Greenheart Travel’s Values

A Commitment to the Environment 

As the leading eco-friendly exchange organization, we are passionate about helping travelers explore the globe while respecting the environment and cultural heritage of the destinations they explore.

Greenheart Gives Back Program

Each year we donate a portion of our travelers’ program fees to one of our environmentally-focused volunteer projects, helping our partners complete specific project goals. Greenheart Travel alumni vote on how we allocate these funds in the weeks leading up to our annual Give Back Award announcement.

Creating Sustainability Within Our International Communities

We believe in supporting our travelers to make a positive impact in their host communities. The Greenheart Club is just one way we can help you promote green practices while traveling abroad through Greenheart Grant funding and community support.

Connecting with Our Local Chicago Community

Greenheart Travel plays an active role in community initiatives, informative workshops, and fundraisers to help others learn how to travel for a change in our hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
