Pathfinders are given the opportunity to travel throughout the USA and Canada, Asia, and Mexico while completing a research project of their own choosing that will help them broaden their understanding of the cultures of the countries they are visiting.
What makes this programme so successful is the wonderful and loyal network of hosts that Pathfinders engage with along their journey. Hosting may involve offering a bed in your home or apartment for a night to a Pathfinder on his or her journey, or simply meeting a Pathfinder for drinks or a meal.
Meet the Pathfinders who will be travelling this summer.
