""Loomis Chaffee students had an extraordinary experience with Peace Works in Washington, D.C. We love how Peace Works connects students to the insider's opportunities that make our democracy really come alive for teens.""
Marley Aloe Matlack, Director of International Education Programs - Loomis Chaffee School
""Thank you for your great work in attending to all the variables of our student culture, social-emotional wellness, and diverse traveling groups. Peace Works is on the cutting edge of ethical student travel." "
Ann Diederich, Polytechnic School
"“I’ve participated in three amazing and unique Peace Works Travel programs. When Peace Works educates its students, it piques the students’ intellectual curiosity rather than teaching in a forced way that school would. The most impactful part of my experience was meeting the local people of a given destination and learning about situations so different than what we know or what we see in the news.” "
Jordan B, Laguna Blanca Student
"Vietnam was a name I had grown up hearing. When my school announced the spring trip, I knew I had to go. It was the best experience of my entire life."
Anastasia, Student, Francis Parker School
""It was an amazing experience for the kids and it was so profoundly different from anything they had ever done. For my students, it was really powerful. All the things in the itinerary came about because of who the host manager is in the community. She gave us the lay of the land. It's very clear that she's a teacher. She's got that magnetic twinkle in her eye. From a safety and security standpoint, I felt confident, because there's absolutely no one that knows that community as well as our host manager does. All the interactions that the kids had with children, veterans and at the church service were meaningful." "
Catherine Zusky, The Brentwood School
"Volunteering at the Peace Village was life-changing for my students. I am forever grateful for this experience."
Cheri Gaulke, Visual Arts Teacher, Harvard-Westlake School
"Our students asked such great questions that integrated their thinking on policies and personalities. It’s clear they are connecting the various stories of Vietnam together in a more comprehensive picture of the war."
Eric Taylor, Teacher, Francis Parker School
"“My most recent travel experience with Peace Works Travel (PWT) was in Rwanda. It was so very enriching and fulfilling. Each and every day afforded another opportunity for us to meet and interact with regular Rwandan people across a spectrum of class, gender, geography, and life experience, from national leaders to local leaders, grassroot organizers to social entrepreneurs, filmmakers to visual artists, teachers, students, dancers and drummers. PWT connected us with so many interesting local people and perspectives. I could not be more thankful to Peace Works Travel to have had this experience to have been able to share it with students. “"
Dion Crushshon, The Blake School
"For Amy, this trip was nothing short of life-changing. A million thanks to you and the staff of Peace Works Travel for arranging this wonderful, fantastic, amazing opportunity. Every teenager should do this at least once during high school."
Janice Reinhart, Thacher School Parent
"After visiting the Killing Fields, we restored our hope with a volunteer project teaching English to kids. I understood how humans can heal from tragedy: We must all invest in the hopes of a new generation."
Simone P, Junior, Laguna Blanca School
