WHY WE JOURNEY

 
 

JOURNEY IS AN IMPACT TRAVEL COLLECTIVE

We believe that lasting social change starts within each one of us, and that nothing compares to in-person experiences and human connections to inspire new ways of being. We are rapidly growing a community across North America + Canada through meet-ups, events, international Journeys and a developing leadership program.

 
 
 
 
 

WHY WE JOURNEY? 

Journey's co-founders, Lauren Biegler, Taylor Conroy and Amy Merrill, formed Journey as a new approach to engaging first-hand with social impact projects. Our foundational belief that 'giving-back' is a human instinct, not a chore. When you see someone in pain, or in danger, it is your instinct to help them, rather than turning away and perpetuating suffering. We set out to capture that instinct, and provide a way for people to engage with social impact in deep, authentic and fun way that encourages them to deepen their involvement in social causes and make new decisions about how they show up in the world.
