Dragons was recently featured in the Denver Post! Here's an excerpt:
"Founded in 1993, Dragons has worked with more than 6,000 participants in often remote areas over the years, offering travel experiences ranging from four-week summer programs to three-month gap year and college study abroad programs.
They are transformative programs. Students have an experience of a different way of living life,” Harwood said in an interview. “We go to communities and places that are far from what students are accustomed to, and it challenges them to think about who they are and what their values are in a different way."

Our aim in compiling these narratives is to deconstruct the meaning of freedom as a way to better understand the tenets of human rights and our civic responsibilities. To quote Nobel Peace Price recipient, Oscar Arias Sanchez, "The more freedom we enjoy, the greater responsibility we bear, toward others as well as ourselves."
