This spring, come join Isaac's Angels on a cultural and spiritual adventure in Bali, Indonesia! Known as the "Island of the Gods", Bali is an iconic, spiritually awakening adventure waiting to be discovered.
Come join us from March 24th-March 29th on a cultural journey to Bali, Indonesia- in partial celebration of our founder's 28th birthday! Isaac's Angels prides itself on its mission in bridging cultures and communities together through love, language and laughter. Our excursions offer our participants a cultural exchange opportunity that allows for individual growth and reflection that only occurs when being placed outside your comfort zone and stepping "into the unknown".
Participants will have the opportunity to experience Bali through the eyes of a local by partnering with a local school to volunteer with English language exchange and/or a social-service project of that school's choice. Our partnered organization is Jodie O'Shea House -dedicated to helping the most disadvantaged youth of Bali have an opportunity for success and a healthy life. Our angels will be tasked with completing a social-service project in relation to the organization's needs throughout the course of 2-days out of their 5-day excursion.
The remaining 3 days will be dedicated to experiencing all that Bali has to offer! From beaches to the glittering nightlife to the iconic rice fields that scream your next Instagram post, Bali has it all! Some notable landmarks we will venture to is Uluwatu temple, sacred monkey forrest, and Tegallalang.
Pricing is a minimal fee of $600/USD (flight not included) . Because we are a non-profit dedicated to the experience of cultural exchange, we eliminate the standard of unethical tourism through exploitation practices that hurt local communities. Due to this, our experiences are more aligned with benefiting local businesses and strengthening local economies than industries and chains.
* If you are looking for the glitzy, ritzy, and five-star Bali experience, this is not for you. We come to Bali to bridge cultures and communities and get a little dirty and have fun while doing it.*
*Isaac's Angels is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children from under-resourced communities throughout the Chicagoland area bridge cultures, build global community, and eliminate stereotypes and stigma through cultural exchange and social-service. Isaac's Angels plans to take our younger angels on their first international trip during Chicago Public Schools Spring vacation to a pending destination in 2020.
These students will have an opportunity to work alongside a local organization from that region to complete a social-service project that strengthens the local community of that region while also being part of cultural and language exchange experiences that bring different communities together in love, language, and laughter. Isaac's Angels is committed to making this an affordable experience for our youth angels and have pledged to cover at minimum 70% of operation expenses per student.
Because we have pledged to make this a cost-effective experience for our angels, our adult angel programs serve as fundraisers for our youth angel program and are completely tax-deductible. A major portion of the proceeds from our adult angel trips benefit the youth angel program while the remaining covers overhead expenses and operational costs.
