WHO WE ARE
The Passport Party Project is a National Geographic Travel award-winning philanthropic global awareness initiative for underrepresented American girls 11-15 which puts passports in the hands of girls with the help of travel advocates worldwide. Spearheaded by travelpreneur Tracey Friley, the project’s goal is to encourage young underrepresented tweens to start down the path to global citizenship early by becoming passport holders and travel ambassadors who ultimately pay it forward by encouraging passport ownership, teen travel, and study abroad amongst their peers.
The Passport Party Project is committed to diversity abroad and aims to make a difference in both passport and study abroad stats in its own way by shifting the global mindset of underrepresented teens in their formative years so that they are prepared for international travel and ultimately, the global marketplace.
The Passport Party Project is putting 365 passports in the hands of underrepresented youth ages 11-15 from across the United States committed to (1) following through with the passport application process, (2) making a lifelong commitment to #travelwithheart, (3) starting down the path to global citizenship, and (4) becoming a lifelong Passport Ambassador by encouraging other teens to get their first passports.
