The next generation of global leadership

Empathy, compassion, and humility are not always the result of travel. Dragons works with schools, universities, colleges, and organizations committed to doing their utmost to ensure that each cross-cultural experience is an intentional, safe, and ethical one. With those institutions, we partner to develop deep, transformative engagement with the world.

Schools & Universities

Dragons has offered custom programs since the 1990s. In 2012, we created “Partnerships” to provide a long-term and focused platform for institutional capacity building in global experiential education. Our first fully fledged partnership with Princeton University in 2010 cleared the path for working with a long list of inspired institutions around the world to deepen and enhance global programming.
