Why Develop a Group Program With Kaya?

Responsible

We understand the nuances and complexities of responsible engagement in our locations. We remain committed to progressing sustainable practices within the industry and adapting to a constantly changing world.

Local

With local teams in-country year-round and a long-standing network of contacts in a wide range of fields, we are able to enrich all of our programs by drawing upon local expertise.

Culturally Immersive

We incorporate cultural immersion into every program. Our goal is to facilitate meaningful conversations, amplify local perspectives, and create incredible experiences for both your participants and the local community.

Educational

Whether your program is academic or recreational, we work with you one-on-one to deliver on your unique learning goals, progressing competencies and self-confidence through immersive experiences abroad.

Aligned With the UN SDGs

The UN Sustainable Development Goals guide our program impact. Every program we run will touch on at least one of the 17 Goals, encouraging discussions around sustainability in action.

Off the Beaten Path

With hundreds of off the beaten path locations to choose from, we are your guide to underrepresented destinations throughout Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

Supported and Structured

Our goal is to allow you to travel with ease. With this in mind, we will take care of any safety and liability requirements, coordinate logistics, and provide personalized support from start to finish.

Customizable

Our group programs are fully customizable, so we’re ready for your wild and wonderful ideas. Whether you have an itinerary in mind or you’re not sure where to start, we will work with you to build your program.

Recent Group Programs Feedback

“I went there to teach, but in the end, I was the one who learned something. I used to see service as a duty. A duty to help those less fortunate than I was. This experience taught me humility – a humbleness that no matter how old you are, no matter what kind of education you’ve received, you can always learn something from someone else.”

Mohammed | Texas A&M

“The best thing about Kaya is its people. I love working with them. I like their business model, and it aligns with what our faculty want to do – offering more hands-on experience.”
