About Us


Change the world one nameless stranger at a time by bridging cultures through purposeful travel, education, and service.


Our mission is threefold:

  • 1] Foster Holistic Inclusivity – connect families through immersive travel and personalized cultural experiences
  • 2] Increase Cultural Awareness – provide multicultural worldschooling opportunities for learners of all ages
  • 3] Support Social Equity – match families with personally-vetted volunteer opportunities that support local initiatives

Authenticity in expression and mindfulness in action will have lasting positive effects.


We believe every person has the power to affect global change. Understanding that behavioral change is a slow and daunting process, we look to the future through the eyes of the next generation. We seek to foster an environment of curiosity and selflessness through immersive experience and global interactions. This can be done through:

  • Mindful & Responsible Travel
  • Worldschooling
  • Volunteer Service

Inspiring big ideas and small acts, we encourage families of all shapes and sizes to travel to places unknown, learn from and interact with, and give back to local communities.

Future of Purposeful Travel

Novel Excursion is oriented on a brighter, more charitable future with the goal of being the foundation of our own nonprofit organization, World Family Project. Each month, we will donate a portion of our profits to a Cause of the Month and to our personal World Family Project Fund. Sign up for our mailing list to follow the progress.
