Go Abroad – It has always been our mission to change lives through meaningful travel, one destination and one experience at a time. We believe that travel is the key to individuals attaining a broader perspective of the world and that the world is a better place when people have a deeper understanding and greater empathy toward all individuals and cultures.
Launched and conceptualized in 1997, GoAbroad first set out to fill the information gap between students with a desire to travel abroad and companies offering international programs. As the travel industry has evolved and access to opportunities to see the world has grown, our mission has transformed into something much greater than building a bridge between travelers and organizations: we’ve developed and evolved over the past two decades to meet the ever-changing needs of travelers, positioning ourselves as the resource for meaningful travel around the world. Today, we continue to work tirelessly to create new resources and share international travel opportunities, because we believe anyone can find their own way to see the world.
