Community engagement is a key component to the success of any non-profit organization. At First Trip, we actively network with local non-profits that share similar beliefs, diversity advocacy, and educational values through experience and opportunity.
Last month, I had the privilege to represent First Trip at a local event hosted by the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Metropolitan, Washington D.C. Chapter. The event celebrated the accomplishments and importance of elevating Black women and girls' voices through politics, education, health, and more. As a distinguished guest, First Trip was given a platform for participants to learn more about our work and scholarship opportunities for international education!
We were proud to support this event and will continue to seek additional opportunities to partner with organizations to raise awareness of our work and build community to share our goals. First Trip values cross-cultural learning and promotes global citizenship through our travel scholarships, passport workshops, and global-career mapping.
