About this trip


 Young Black and Global has organized a dynamic summer program for 2 weeks in July of each year. The summer program is an opportunity for students to spend time in Africa, explore culture, reconnect to their lost heritage, while learning valuable skills in trading on a continent leading the world in mobile money and ripe for development opportunities in all sectors.


As a global community we are confronting the consequences of the last 4 centuries on the world. We are exiting a time of exclusion, oppression, and domination. We are entering a new season of great opportunity that will maximize the genius of people from all over the world and create a new system of prosperity that rewards people based on effort and merit. Nothing has changed the playing field more, and opened us up to endless opportunity across race, class, gender and region than technology. Technology fused with finance is THE GREAT EQUALIZER! It provides a whole generation of people who in the past may have been prevented the access to financial and tech education, the vehicle to prevail over poverty. Now a young boy on the south side of Chicago can learn to trade and change the course and direction of his family. A housewife in Morocco can learn to build apps and create the next best thing and empower herself and her children. On the other side of the world a young woman in Ghana can learn to trade, make the same money she would make by leaving her beloved nation, stay in her own community, cut of the brain drain happening in Africa and build her nation with her skill and resources. This is an exciting time that can literally heal our world of fabricated obstacles to stability and success.

Young Black and Global will be partnered with Letner Technology Junior Engineers program, led by the dynamic, 11-year-old, Owen Letner. Who better than to help push this initiative forward but a child, armed with the knowledge of trading and app building and on a mission to teach other kids the power of these skills. Letner Technology, Junior Engineers will be sponsoring the summer programs by providing and invaluable opportunity for summer participants to learn trading powered by FinTron U, a trading educational platform.

All I can say is stellar! That is the word that comes to mind when I think about T Barnes and her global travel experiences. I had the extreme pleasure of having my first T. Barnes experience in 2018 to Indonesia and have since curated a series of retreats with her to Morocco and soon Senegal. Imagine, taking six of the most prolific pastors in the world to Morocco for a T Barnes experience and it being everything you thought it would be and more! From class to expertise, Tanesha never fails. As a global retreat leader, professionalism is my utmost concern and she always executes with full working knowledge, honesty and care. While honoring the wishes of each retreat leader for a customized and unique experience. In fact, when stuck in Morocco due to border closures recently, she transformed my business trip into a fully immersive Moroccan experience! It was the best vacation I never had! Lol! I’m looking forward to 2022 and the 5 retreats I have booked with many more to come in 2023! Trust T.Barnes with your global travel experience today! Tisha Dixon -Williams

I have traveled with TaNesha Barnes. This sentence holds so much power, let me tell you why. TaNesha is NOT a travel agent, she literally curates an experience for your a group, based on where you are going. She arranges for the travel, the accomodations, the excursions but not touristy stuff, oh no...that would be too pedestrian, too ordinary, not SPECIAL, not intentional. Not only is TaNesha a brilliant organizer that cares for the safety, well being, and satisfaction of her guest, she does so as a consummate professional with an amazing price point. Always. All the time. Consistently. And without consideration of how "others" do it. She is communicates and is responsive. Provides receipts and payment plans. Let's face it, trusting someone with your money, to do the right thing, who gives you more than your money's worth...practically unheard of. Our 2021 New Year's Eve trip to Ghana was unfortunately postponed due to COVID-19 related issues. It was a Group trip so all decisions were made corporately. Leading up to the trip, we had emails and zoom calls and were so very excited, but then the outbreaks and shutdowns started up again. TaNesha gave us the information on what was going on with the airlines, the hotel, the climate of traveling during a pandemic. Some persons were feeling apprehensive (who wants to be stuck, for an indeterminate amount of time in another country if there is a lock-down?) and some were not concerned and were willing to go. Some people had jobs to come back to, some had children to care was alot, but, TaNesha laid out the facts and had the group to make the decision. It was ours to make, we decided to postpone, which was for the best. Times are too uncertain to not know if you will be able to enter or leave a foreign country!! We are all paid up so when we do go, we just need to go to the airport and get on the plane!! The most difficult thing you will have to deal with, when dealing with TaNesha, is deciding which trip/experience you are going to take with her. TaNesha cares for you the way a concierge at a 5 diamond hotel, with your own personal butler would...except, she has developed relationships with people and organizations in ALL of the locales in which she travels and plans trips, before you get there so there are no mishaps. Even down to the meals and the T. Barnes Dinner Party (an amazing dinner for the trip participants). And if there does happen to be a situation, like Olivia Pope..."it's handled". Because TaNesha is not a travel agent and her name is on everything and her reputation on the line, she goes above and beyond, always, to make sure you are good. If I could, I would travel on a TaNesha Barnes experience everytime, she does it right!

I have been traveling with Tbarnes Global Lifestyle Retreats since 2018. As a single traveler, Tbarnes is a great communicator, detailed oriented and transparent. These are all of the qualities that I needed to feel secure. In 2021, I was supposed to celebrate New Years in Ghana. As a result of the new variant Omicron, Tbarnes immediately scheduled a zoom meeting to provide updates concerning flight cancellation, Covid protocols in Ghana and the what ifs scenarios. As a group, we collectively agreed to reschedule the trip to Ghana to 2022 in hopes that the pandemic will be under control and that we can enjoy the Motherland. As of today, Tbarnes continues to keep the group updated on the trip and any additional itinerary ideas. If you are single and is looking to travel the world, Tbarnes Global Lifestyle Retreats will suit your needs.
