Good Will Expeditions are voyages across the world of groups of young people to cultures and countries dissimilar to one’s own. In an expedition usually upto 4 countries are covered with strong local participation. The aim is to create opportunity and occasion for young people to meet and combine their knowledge and experiences – to bring them together.
Some basic features of a Good Will Expedition are cross-cultural knowledge, Insights into history of a country or culture, meetings and living with locals, buddying with host culture, fun and adventures in nature and joint activities. All activities are threaded together with the Good Will Philosophy™ and the mission of bringing the world together in Good Will is ever present in the events and goings-on. Prominent people in every culture and society participate in the expeditions lending their wisdom and experience to the youth.
Good Will Expeditions are an important part of “The Great Good Will Exercise™” (Maha Maitri Abhyaas) that promotes Good Will among the youth of the world. As part of this exercise, Good Will creates expeditions in various parts of the world, including, Americas, Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Africa, India, South East Asia, Asia Pacific and Australia
Good Will Expeditions are the breeding ground of new leadership, innovation, creativity and bold ideas. Expeditions generate socio-philosophical-spiritual consciousness. Young leaders who exhibit these qualities are rewarded and inspired to lead other young people. The Good Will cause multiplies with the participation of inspired young people from across the globe.
Good Will Expeditions give opportunities for young people to go to countries and cultures vastly dissimilar to one’s own. Good Will cultivates young leaders and trains them and gives them a platform to showcase their leadership abilities and their good will. In the process of teaching and leading by example in countries that are culturally diverse from their own, the young people in the Good Will Expeditions excel at understanding others, develop a keen sense of self and their own culture, learn through adventure and make lasting friendships.
Along with cross-cultural learning, insights into history of cultures, adventure and loads of fun and enjoyment, the participants and young leaders of Good Will Expeditions learn the Good Will Philosophy™ of willing good for good to happen in the world and in their individual lives. The expeditions make them strong, resilient, culturally aware and capable young people.
