    There are 3 Programs for Greenheart Travel Alumni Within the Greenheart Odyssey (All of Which are Scholarship Funded) 

    Junior Greenheart Global Leader’s Conference

    Jr. Leaders spend five days in Chicago exploring global leadership. They engage in service, public speaking workshops, cultural exchange, and one-on-one engagement with innovative leaders.


    Greenheart Global Leader’s Conference

    Adult Global Leaders spend a week in Washington, D.C. learning how to be advocates for cultural exchange and community development. Business, social justice, and sustainability workshops culminate in a Department of State visit and panelist opportunity.

    Greenheart Global Alumni Council

    Six all-star alumni are chosen to be Greenheart board members for the year. Council members are empowered by the unique opportunity to come together in-person at the Purpose Summit in Berlin, Germany and in online spaces. They develop initiatives that have an international impact.

  • Join the Greenheart Club

    Join a network of generations of global leaders. When you travel on a Greenheart Travel program, you are automatically eligible to be a member of the Greenheart Club. This unique community equips you during and after your Greenheart Travel program to make deeper connections through volunteer service, offers access to Greenheart Grants and gives you a chance to connect with Greenheart alumni outside of Greenheart Travel programs from countries all over the world.

    As a member of the Greenheart Club, you will receive guidance in strategizing creative ways to give back to your community, have access to tools for tracking your impact and receive incentives for your efforts as a global leader.

    How to get involved with the Greenheart Club:

    Once you have been accepted on a Greenheart Travel program, you’ll be able to join the Greenheart Club. Once you have volunteered, you can log your hours in your online account and start tracking your impact!
