Rekindle your global citizenship and immerse yourself in a purpose-filled vacation.
Vacations with Purpose are for families and friends! Each trip includes comfortable accommodations, flexibility, and fun–all while spending time volunteering with local organizations.
Andrew served two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Central America. His overseas volunteer experience ignited a passion to share that experience with others, and he became vice president at a non-profit international volunteer organization. There he set up volunteer operations in 10 countries around the world. Later, he did brief stints with a couple of tech start-up companies. Returning to his passion for helping connect people of different cultures, he founded Terra Education, from which Discover Corps was later born.

Aaron Schlein is a family man, entrepreneur, and podcaster who knows first-hand about the transformational power of family travel.
When Aaron was a teenager, he began exploring the world with his grandmother, Shirley Schlein—to whom he is eternally grateful for igniting his passion for travel. Becoming a father inspired Aaron to pay forward his grandmother’s generosity and create media content to inspire parents to travel the world with their kids.
In the summer of 2018, Aaron partnered with the Family Travel Association to produce its official podcast, Family Travel Radio. Aaron lives in Sacramento, CA with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
