As part of what Pacia Life describes as Track 5 or the Personal Growth Track, our domestic and international travel experiences share the purpose of increasing self-awareness, contributing to world citizenship, learning cultural and world perspectives, and broadening possibilities with future careers.
Proven methodology of the Tatori Method uses key intrinsic motivators via Motivational Interviewing; many of our young adults add international cultural and service immersion experiences to their life map boards. Pacia Life uses unique screening and preparation, customizing and creating international experiences (often referred to as a GAP experience) that go far beyond the tourist’s goals.
These experiences are often a significant shift in personal growth for a young adult as they experience distant lands, cultures, and become the giver and partner to those in need instead of the receiver. Teaching school while living in a Buddhist Monastery in Nepal, working on a dude ranch in Argentina or building schools and greenhouses in Peru, caring for orphanage children in East Africa or walking the pilgrimage trail across Europe. The list of available countries and opportunities shifts each year based on changing safety concerns, strength of partner organizations, and political stability, all monitored closely by our teams.
