Custom Travel Program Development For Non Profits + Community Partners
Each program will be built from the ground up and will be driven by your goals and values that you have defined through the initial consultancy. We are very selective with all potential partners, and our involvement in the program development will go as deep as you so desire. From flights, insurance, transportation and logistics on the back end, to safety and risk management, curriculum, and leadership on the front end, our goal is to set you up for success and position you confidently in a global partnership.
- Leadership + Capacity Building: This is your most valued asset in partnership with BlueDotOrg. Our goal is to help you feel prepared to host and facilitate a global partnership that contributes to the core activities of your organization. We will cover best practices in facilitation, safety and risk management, cross-cultural communication and learning methodologies and will set you and your team up for success. This is a fluid, collaborative and open-sourced process and we are committed to helping you feel prepared for your global partnership.
- Safety + Risk Management: With over two decades of experience managing international travel programs on four continents, BlueDotOrg has you covered when it comes to safety and risk management. Starting from the moment your global partner signs up for the program to the moment they return home, our risk management and prevention protocols are as thorough and advanced as they come. From our research and vetting process during the initial consultation with all partners, to trainings and capacity building of your partner’s leadership teams and facilitators, to our dedication to local emergency response procedures, safety is our number one priority. Our goal is to allow you to focus your attention on your program goals, outcomes, and on facilitating an outstanding cross-cultural experience.
- Educational Programming: During this phase, we will analyze what learning opportunities are available to your global partner and we will spot light them in a way that will resonate. These learning opportunities might range from cultural and social in nature, to environmental or technical, requiring expertise from within (or outside) the community. Next we will work directly with the leadership team (facilitators, head coaches, guides, field experts, etc.) to collectively determine the methodology that is most appropriate for your global partnership. Lastly, we’ll help you develop tools that can deepen and sustain the learning through projects and experiential practices that have a lasting impact on all involved.
