Passports4Change is a program designed by Dreamers4Change Foundation and it is built on the premise of travel as a vital tool of learning. Passports4Change is NOT a study abroad program. It is NOT a luxury trip. It is NOT a destination trip. It IS a learning experience that utilizes travel to explore the intersections of race, class, gender, citizenship on other intersecting oppressions. We work toward articulating our own politics of location, then we move toward situating ourselves in the global world, then we investigate how colonialism, imperialism and other political formations often determine and shape our lives. We end our program with an emphasis on imagination, vision-making, and creating. We know the world we imagine will not emerge without work and so we ground our program in doing the work.
The Passports4Change program is rooted in the belief that low-income youth who have previously been deprived of the opportunity to travel, stand to gain a great deal from the opportunity to live in contexts cultural, politically, socially different than their own. We also believe these youth have a great deal to teach the world. We are specifically investing in low-income youth who do not own a passport, who have not traveled abroad and youth who doo not have the resources to engage in a cross-cultural study. We further believe that cross-cultural study opens up the possibilities of change, transformation and creativity.
Since 2000, we have contributed to the development of children in the greater San Francisco area through our wide range of programs. Our Youth Workshops is centered on instilling strong values into our youth and provides a space for them to expand their mind while meeting new and interesting individuals.
