Our Mission:

Connect.

We foster cross-cultural relationships through inspiring, equipping, and connecting young leaders throughout the African diaspora.

 
 
 

Our Programs

We have several programs that include the Ambassadors Program, Global Cities Cultural Exchange Programs, and Cultural Competency Workshops.

 

Ambassadors program

The Black Beyond Borders Ambassadors Program is a semester to year-long leadership program that gives travelers a chance to share their unique experiences with others on campus and through our online platform. With stories and pictures, you, the traveler, play a critical role in not only expanding the brand of Black Beyond Borders, but also telling the adventures of Black travelers that often go untold. It is expected that you will advocate and encourage other students of the African diaspora to study and travel abroad. Additionally, this program will ensure that you think critically about your time abroad, increase network at your home/abroad institution, and advance your communication and creativity skills. It is our hope that you truly enjoy your experience during the length of the program.
