Welcome to our new experiential education internships and adventure retreats specializing in sustainable development and environmental leadership! The Red Road Foundation has been becoming sustainable, monetizing waste, providing free education, clean water, solar electricity and implementing a trash collection system in a rural countryside Village. Our sustainable development model is based in free education and creating innovative Social Enterprises that raise the quality of life in the village. Our environmental leadership in the village has locals and interns collaborating making and collecting plastic bottle bricks for construction and promoting sustainable development in the village. We have incentivized our projects through trading for hygiene products and free workshops on the impact trash has on our lives. We have had hundreds of volunteers/interns from all over the world coming to participate in implementing these grassroots projects. We are able to encourage environmental leadership by customizing our projects to fully exercise the passions and skills of our students and interns
Many times during summer internships abroad, we get groups of people who have new ideas and we collaborate with them to be able to carry out their visions. We work as a team to create a better world based on sustainable development, global awareness, compassionate initiative, experiential learning, community service and learning the true potential of each of us. Through our program, our interns are able to test out ideas and theories that may work in a cross-cultural, grassroots movement They are able to work alongside a team that speaks the local language, has interpersonal relationships within the village and has the means and knowledge to be able to carry out specific projects and initiatives. We emphasize environmental leadership by empowering our interns to use critical thinking to solve problems and through the process of service learning become a more self-confident version of themselves.
