Service Learning Programs     

Students who travel with us on Service Learning Programs immerse themselves in places average tourists have never heard of and few will ever venture. They come to see change and create change, to study new languages and customs, to interact with animals and to build schools. They are learners, givers and adventurers.
        
Language and Service

RLT's language and service programs combine foreign language education with cultural immersion and service work. We offer Spanish immersion, Spanish exposure, formal group Spanish courses, and formal one-on-one Spanish instruction. All of our language programs offer community service, ranging from 40 - 80 hours of work. By learning Spanish, you will gain new horizons. At the same time, by learning more about yourself and others, you will grow in confidence as a global citizen.
    
Adventure Expeditions
    
Come and explore some of the most extraordinary places on earth. Paddle a raft through a canyon filled with gushing whitewater, summit a snow covered peak, climb a sheer rock face, sea kayak through a majestic fjord, or hike through an expansive desert. There really is no substitute for being outdoors.
    
Global Perspectives Programs     

Global travel allows us to take ourselves out of our usual environment and see life from a different perspective. Exploring different languages, cultures and landscapes, we travel with open eyes and minds to acquire a new global perspective and find that the best places have no address, and some sites cannot be captured in a web.
    
Leadership Training

Self-aware and equipped with skills as leaders, students are prepared for the independence of college life. Leadership course students are trained in the stages of group development, mediation and tolerance. Upon successful completion of our courses, participants earn a Wilderness First Responder certification which enables them to participate as EST (Emergency Support Team) members at their college campuses.
