Next Step Travel

Travel with NPCA!

NPCA’s Next Step Travel program provides respectful hyper-local immersion in developing countries:  360-degree “anti-tour” itineraries that combine unparalleled local access, cultural immersion, non-extreme adventure, and opportunities that open pathways for connection with local people.

The chance to get a close-up view with a Peace Corps perspective is a unique feature of Next Step Travel. In-country staff make it a point to seek out local craftspeople, small businesses and cooperatives, many with a Peace Corps connection. Each trip is with a small group and most are all-inclusive, freeing you fully to experience every minute of your trip - and enjoy the company of your travel companions.

Please join us as we explore these upcoming destinations

  • April 15 - 22, 2017: CUBA
  • April 30 - May 13, 2017 and October 8 - 21, 2017: MOROCCO - in collaboration with Friends of Morocco

In Partnership with Fulbright Association

Through a special arrangement with our friends and colleagues at Fulbright Association, we are excited to offer this opportunity to explore our newest Peace Corps country - before even any volunteers arrive! This program is meant to give participants an experience in Vietnamese history, heritage and identity, the challenges facing the indigenous populations of Vietnamese today, along with a service project, where the group will contribute to a Hanoi based non-profit organization. (Please tell them you learned about this from the NPCA!)

  • April 2 - 14, 2017: VIETNAM (registration deadline: January 19, 2017)
