PEOPLE TO PEOPLE INTERNATIONAL'S MISSION & VISION
PEOPLE TO PEOPLE INTERNATIONAL'S MISSION is to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural, and humanitarian activities involving the exchange of ideas and experiences directly among peoples of different countries and diverse cultures.
PEOPLE TO PEOPLE INTERNATIONAL'S VISION is that a cross-cultural network of engaged and knowledgeable everyday citizen leaders will be an active force in creating and sustaining a more peaceful world.
People to People International Student Travel Programs are advocates of this mission and vision. You can be assured that we subscribe to this globally recognised vision of People to People International set forth by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956.
OUR TRAVEL MISSION & VISION
Our TRAVEL MISSION is to connect our student travelers to new cultures and friendships, by introducing them to life-changing, worldwide experiences that expand their minds.
Our TRAVEL VISION is for every person worldwide to accept and understand each other’s cultural differences.
OUR CORE VALUES
MAKING LIFE-LONG CONNECTIONS
People to People International Student Travel programs have a fundamental respect for the people of the world reflecting the vision of the founder of People to People International. We encourage cultural awareness through unique 'People to People' moments. From playing sports at an outback school in Australia to meeting a Member of Parliament in London. From a city hall greeting in Japan to talking history with students at a Belfast high school, we believe personal connection grows into international understanding.
Together with trained teacher leaders and highly experienced overseas travel providers, our travel instils personal maturity and sense of responsibility in students. We believe this builds stronger, more confident citizens in our own nation.
We hear this again and again from parents: how could my child have grown so aware in such a short time? It happens on our programs….and thousands of our alumni would agree with us.
Our travelers’ safety is our number one priority which is why we subscribe to leading industry initiatives as above and our own safety policies pioneered over many years.
OUR PEOPLE & THEIR MOTIVATION
Within ECE International we have recruited people with many years of experience of student youth travel and they’re all committed to Former President Eisenhower’s vision that through a cross-cultural network of engaged and knowledgeable everyday citizen leaders will be an active force in creating and sustaining a more peaceful world.
