Welcome to the Farther Foundation blog –Blog Farther. We hope this will be a fun and easy way to share news, information, advice and above all stories about the benefits of educational travel and experiential learning. We will be telling our stories, and we want to hear from you as well. Like most blogs, you are free to comment in response to any posting we make. We also want to invite you to be a guest blogger if you share our passion for travel, education and service to the community. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Farther Foundation’s mission is to enable students from economically disadvantaged circumstances to explore interests, expand horizons, gain inspiration and elevate aspirations for leadership and success.
We do this by providing scholarships and support for students to participate in educational travel experiences that are significant and potentially life changing. They participate in programs which enable them to become immersed in new cultures and experiences, learn and develop skills, provide service, cultivate leadership potential and attain personal growth.
Travel is singular in its ability to open the eyes and unbind the aspirations of students whose experiences rarely escape the boundaries of their own neighborhoods. Inspired by experience students become active and engaged learners, full of potential and more fully aware of the world and its opportunities.
We invite you to share:
- Your travel stories and experiences: What have you learned?
- Your advice or opportunities you offer: How can you help a deserving student?
- Your mission: How does your organization support deserving students?
- Your support: Please make a contribution to Farther Foundation.
Farther Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing scholarships to low-income students to inspire them to reach their highest aspirations through educational travel experiences. http://www.fartherfoundation.org.
