MAKE A DIFFERENCE
World of Difference (WOD) offers students a unique opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and immerse themselves into another culture. During a World of Difference tour, students will experience the cultural diversity of the countries they visit, explore some of the country’s most stunning sites, learn about its fascinating history and better themselves as a person as they grow through the process of making a World of Difference in the lives of others.
The tour costs are all inclusive and are amazingly affordable because WOD is a not-for-profit where there are no administration fees.
“People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.”
