5 WORLD EXPLORERS & STORYTELLERS
Hi! We are Todd, Gina, Kaitlin, Cassidy, and Trevor – a family of explorers on a mission to make a positive impact on the world. We turned childhood dreams into reality by questioning the rules, challenging the ordinary, and escaping the status quo to create an extraordinary life filled with wonder, gratitude, family connection, laughter, and giving back.
So far, we have explored over 100 countries on 6 continents and lived in 12 cities in 8 different countries since 1995. In 2013, we left our home in Italy to become full-time nomads and volunteers. We’ve done all of this while maintaining a remote corporate job, overcoming cancer and a ongoing disability, and embracing the world as our classroom. Although it wasn’t always easy and we sometimes felt like giving up, we followed our hearts, conquered our fears and ignored all the cynics to design a fun, free, exciting life where we get to capture the magic of the world everyday.
We hope our story inspires others to always follow their hearts and chart their own course – leading them to the life of their dreams.
ON A GLOBAL EDUCATION QUEST
We left our home and the school system 6 years ago to reignite our passion for learning by designing an alternative global curriculum based on:
Dynamic learning in and from the world instead of a classroom
Cultural immersion and cross-cultural connection and understanding
Critical thinking skills that encourage creativity and challenge the preconceived ideas of society and the “one size fits all” education.
Following the interests and passion of each child leading to lifelong curiosity and a love of learning.
Applicable content and life skills based on location, global and historical perspectives, new technology, and current events.
Becoming global citizens and changemakers who give back to the world through volunteering, activism, and shining a light of love and hope to all we meet.
GIVING BACK TO THE WORLD
Activism, contribution and giving back to the world are core values for our family.
Open minds lead to open hearts, so we must take a stand and use our voices to tell the true stories of the events of the world – and not what the media and divisive politicians are saying. We believe that as travelers and truth seekers, we must protect and nurture the people, animals, and environment that society has left behind to create a positive change in the future.
In 2015, our kids founded a non-profit organization called Kids Unite 4 Hope to help refugees fleeing war in the Middle East. We have volunteered in Turkey and Greece helping hundreds of kids and started a makeshift school in a refugee camp in Athens.
We are passionate about raising awareness of the refugee crisis and sharing the messages of unity, compassion, and global citizenship with the world.
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved into stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” – Pericles
