Never have we yearned for our youth more than the moment we found out about this amazing free opportunity for teenage girls.

Ice-covered volcanoes, Alaskan glaciers, and glacial ocean kayaking are a few of the potential adventures that await via Inspiring Girls Expeditions.

The Mission

Providing a unique opportunity for girls to travel the world with peers and role models, the mission of this program aims to “bring out natural curiosity, inspire interest in science, connect the arts and sciences, free girls from gender roles, provide a less competitive atmosphere and encourage trust in physical abilities.”
