Global Family Travels Founder, Jennifer Spatz (back right) and Family in ChinaBELLEVUE, WA – (January 20, 2014) Global Family Travels offers trips for families to Learn, Serve and Immerse in cultures throughout the world, using travel as a means to foster global citizenship and inspire the next generation of local and global leaders.

In 2014/2015, Global Family Travels is offering small group family vacations that combine cultural touring, educational activities, home-stays and service learning opportunities with host communities in China, India, Turkey, Nicaragua, Peru and Africa. 

Through its three pillars of Learn, Serve and Immerse, Global Family Travel’s network of experienced guides and exclusive itineraries offer participants safe access to life-changing cultural experiences and the opportunity to strengthen family values and bonds while traveling.

Learn: Global Family Travels believes the most powerful way to learn is through first-hand experiences.  Through these trips, the country and its people are the teachers.

Serve: Global Family Travels’ trips bring families from different cultures together to learn from each other and to work side-by-side in service projects that effect positive change.

Immerse: Global Family Travels provides the opportunity for travelers to “do as the locals do” and to become engaged in local customs and culture of the communities they visit. This includes home-stay programs.

 â€œThrough immersing yourself in a community culture and serving alongside its people, we have the opportunity to open ourselves to the things that bind us together as fellow human beings and help us to realize no matter how different we may look, dress or speak, we have shared values and the desire to be connected,” explains Global Family Travels founder Jennifer Spatz. “We are committed to our core values of social and environmental ethics and the belief that the best way to foster these values in the next generation is to give them the gift of recognizing their place in the global community. Our trips offers families the opportunity to strengthen their own bond and connect to the global community in a meaningful and life-changing way, building bridges between cultures.”
