Not only do our students get to experience a life-changing trip, we also place them on a path to career fulfillment in sustainability & give them a group to call family. These are their stories...
"Not only have I been able to meet people who have the same mindset and goals to save the environment, but I was also able to step out of my comfort zone."
"Taking classes at Reykjavik University while being immersed in nature helped solidify my thoughts of an ideal career path post graduation."
"I want to help as many people as possible through education. I want to inspire people and help them know that they can do anything."
"The GREEN program was the fastest 10 days of my life, but I learned more about myself and the environment than I did through four years of my undergraduate career."
"My resume summarizes all of the experiences I've had, but it doesn't share my passion and dedication to whatever I choose to pursue. I'm extraordinarily energetic and have a bright, positive outlook that is contagious and makes everyday challenges enjoyable."
"I want to leave our earth in better shape than I came into it. I want to make sure that my kids and grandkids and great-grandkids can live in this beautiful world without fear of losing the very things that make it so beautiful."
"I want to be an advocate for not only The GREEN Program, but also the environment and how we can use all areas of study to conserve and better the world we live in today."
"The GREEN Program had a large focus on a topic I was interested in and wanted to learn more about, and I had the opportunity to learn about sustainability in an immersive environment."
"I hope to lead by example in living the life that is right for me on my path, and to inspire others to walk their own path."
"This trip was for anyone who strives to live a purposeful life. I mean that in every sense of the word."
I’m a critical thinker and problem solver. I’m a hard worker that tries to understand perspectives from all different angles.
"Main takeaway: Step outside of your comfort zone when it comes to your educational career."
"I hope to expand people's knowledge about the the unique programs TGP has to offer and hopefully give people an outlet to explore their interests in this field in a hands on setting rather than just learning about it in a classroom setting."
"This program has completely shifted my focus to making the world cleaner and more sustainable."
"Everything we did was so hands-on and there was a clear, relevant purpose for everything we learned. Best decision ever!"
"Just do it! Go! It's so amazing and however nervous you are it's so worth it."
"Seeing Machu Picchu will be forever in my memory and it was one of the best moments of my life."
"TGP is a journey to be one with endless learning, laughter and lifetime experiences."
"My experience with TGP in Iceland was packed full of stunning landscapes, unique adventures and brilliant people."
