How do CELL Custom Non-Credit Programs work?

CELL works with a group, like yours, to offer unique, domestic and international learning adventures to inspiringly beautiful locations. Our programs are more than sight-seeing travel excursions. During a CELL program, you will have an adventure of a lifetime while becoming immersed in local cultures, learning about the history that has helped to shape your host country, learn about ecology while exploring a tropical rainforest, learn about geology while hiking a volcano or glacier, learn about conservation while helping tag endangered sea turtles, learn about the principles of sustainability while living in an eco-village, learn how one life, your life, can make a BIG difference in the world through committing to taking action when you return home. A WARNING is in order here: A CELL program will transform how you view yourself and your relationship with others and your natural world. Regarding logistics, CELL takes care of logistical and travel arrangements, in-country lodging and food, teaching and guiding, etc. You take care of organizing a group of people who want to have an adventure of a lifetime.

If you have a group that would like to travel, contact us and we will begin a conversation. We don’t offer cookie cutter programs. All of our programs are designed around your interests and learning goals. Where do you want to travel? When? What do you want to learn and why? It all starts with a conversation where we explore what your group is most interested in learning, doing and serving. A CELL program is more than an adventure: you will be inspired by some of planet Earth’s most spectacular scenery, you will get up close and personal with the people and culture of your host country, you will learn the principles of sustainability from inspiring communities and people who don’t know you can’t do things, so they go ahead and do them. Contact us to begin a conversation about an unforgettable learning adventure tailored to your unique interests and motivations.

“Breathtaking beauty, silence, time to listen to nature and my heart, get inspiration from my fellow participants and the facilitators, all this profoundly impacted my sense of self and the world surrounding all of us. The workshop inspired deep reflection, renewal, and the opportunity to make new connections within myself and others on the Island.”
