What does it mean to be a Trip Organizer?
Our Trip Organizers are teachers, church leaders, heads of family, Tai Chi instructors, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, etc. What they all have in common is that they are inspired by our work and the people of San Ramón and want to share our vision of international friendship with their students, colleagues, friends, and/or family. They recruit trip participants and work closely with SCSRN staff to help us build a trip that perfectly meets the group’s interests, wants, and needs. If a Trip Organizer gets 10 people to go on the trip, he or she goes for free, and gets a $750 stipend toward airfare.
Since SCSRN staff handle all trip planning and logistics, the Trip Organizer’s job is not hard. We provide you with all the information you could possibly need in our Trip Organizer’s packet, and we work hand-in-hand with you before the trip to make sure that each visitor is completely prepared for their trip. After more than 25 years of experience bringing groups to San Ramón, we have perfected trip planning to a fine art!
