At Dragons, we believe that intentionally crafted global experiential education can inspire social change, foster connection, and lead to a better humanity. We also know the many challenges involved in building authentic, safe, and ethical programming. Dragons Partnerships helps schools and universities clarify their vision, navigate varying stakeholder expectations, and execute successful international programs.
