The GREEN Program is an experiential travel education company based in Philadelphia, founded in 2009 by Melissa Lee and friends. The GREEN Program curates and sells short-term environmental education and sustainability courses for college students in Peru, Iceland and Philadelphia. Students gain college credit for their GREEN Program courses.
The GREEN Program’s mission to create the next generation of environmental leaders through immersive and meaningful travel fits well within Untours’ general ethos of travel with a purpose, as well as the foundation’s focus on sustainable development. Growth of the GREEN Program will provide more quality jobs and the GREEN Program is active with the Philadelphia Mayor’s Office of Sustainability to promote sustainable businesses beyond itself.
