“The instructors on this trip balanced fun with academics to the point where each complemented each other. The academic aspect allowed us, as students, to apply what we learn to the environment around us by creating an immersive experience. All in all, Broadreach has found the formula to making learning stick with young adults, and I highly recommend Broadreach to anyone wanting to have a fun time or experience different walks of life.” Connor, high school alumnus
