Collaborative work with Dragons will increase the depth and quality of your organization’s experience, while reducing cost, hassle, and risk.

After 25 years of running immersive international programming, Dragons has developed strategies, and best practices in intercultural facilitation and global education- and we want to share all of that with you.

Dragons Partnerships are safe, economical, sustainable, and offer less hassle with higher learning outcomes.

Dragons collaborates directly with organizations to develop original programs that provide profound learning opportunities abroad. Our long-standing in-country relationships offer participants unique, authentic access to local communities and issues. Dragons Partnerships model best practices in low-impact travel, from the ways we support communities to where we eat and sleep. Dragons manages all details and logistical components of the program, including communication, paperwork, and risk management systems.
