    12. “What gives me the most hope for tomorrow, is the youth of today. Young people are inspired to care about the world around them thanks to the work of organizations like Global Explorers” - Dr. Jane Goodall www.GlobalExplorers.org

    13. “When I first heard about Global Explorers I wanted to get involved right away. Their values are my values. The student travel industry is more than just a field trip to the Statue Of Liberty. That's important, and has its place, but with our planet experiencing dangerous ecological, social, political and economic shape shifting, the future of our global community depends on the young people of the world…” www.GlobalExplorers.org

    14. “…And if we expect them to rise to the occasion and lead us into the 21st Century then we better make sure they understand the world. And the only way to do that is to let them see it. Global Explorers connects young people with the 'real' world. Not the world of tourist attractions and museums. The world of people. And through service, provides them with perspective changing life altering mechanisms for understanding the importance of globalism.” - Andrew Zimmern www.GlobalExplorers.org
