Minority POC representation in travel the travel industry preserves our nation’s diverse history and ensures our authentic stories and the nuances of the culture’s traditions, arts, and events that tour students know so well are shared.

We actively recruit participants from HBCU Institutions, Black College Alumni Associations, and Black Social Groups to participate in our Tourism Mentorship Programs, Destination Management, and Entrepreneurship Training Programs.
