the journey TM


A leader is not a tourist, but rather, an explorer in life. A leader takes risks and jumps at every opportunity to learn and grow.

The Journey is a group of courses designed to teach students what it means to lead with purpose—to inspire positive change in themselves and their communities—and fosters valuable skills that will guide them through life.

By combining activity, curriculum, and discussion, The Journey engages students in a whole-brain, experiential learning that has been proven successful. Travelers become independent, critical thinkers that can overcome obstacles and reach their goals.

The Journey is administered by certified guides and provided exclusively by Grace Adventures as part of the Leadership Journey©.

Courses are packaged on an individual basis and range from three hours to six days. Complete The Journey on-campus or at a location of your choice.

We'll partner with your classroom, team, or group to ensure your students absorb the leadership skills and put them into practice. The curriculum can be customized for public and private classrooms and faith-based organizations.
