The Adventure Out Loud Difference

The world’s true beauty isn’t captured by popular tourist attractions. True beauty is found by immersing one’s self in new community, culture and language and finding a way to make a difference in someone else’s life.

Smalls Groups, Big Difference

In 2015, after spending 18 months living and volunteering in Tanzania, Nate wanted to do something more. He wanted to find a way to help other people through his passion for travel and adventure. In particular, he wanted to keep disadvantaged students in school.

Nate thought this goal could be achieved by connecting the millions of travellers who visit developing countries each year to local communities, cultures and charities. Ultimately, he believed he could inspire travellers to help the people and causes that they met on their adventures.

Over the next 6 to 12 months, Nate discussed the idea with hundreds of people as he travelled across Africa, the Middle East and Europe, and was amazed by just how many people loved and supported the idea. 

After running the concept past Steve Brunskill, a trusted mentor, the two felt compelled to develop the idea further. By late 2015, Adventure Out Loud and the #adventureforacause travel model were born.

Since our first #adventureforacause in July 2016, we’ve already made a huge difference.
