The GREEN Program is a program provider offering 5 abroad programs. Programs offered include Study Abroad, Internship, Gap Year, and Research abroad programs in 5 countries such as Iceland, Online Education Abroad - Virtual Study Abroad, Nepal, and Peru.

The GREEN Program (TGP) is an award-winning, experiential education program for young leaders in sustainable development. Our mission is to educate and empower future sustainability leaders through innovative models of experiential education, travel, and adventure.

Created for students, by students, TGP has introduced in 2009 as a new model for education abroad– driven by a desire to provide purposeful, hands-on industry exposure at a fraction of the time and cost. Inspired by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, our short-term, accredited, career focused approach creates truly transformative experiences for students around the world– unlocking doors to governmental, public, and private facility access, exclusive tours, and unique bucket-list experiences.

Our partnerships with universities around the world allow our students to have a truly authentic experience by learning from local professors, experts and government officials. TGP redefines the classroom by enabling one-of-a-kind experiences like studying the effects of climate change on the top of our world’s glaciers. We allow students to maximize their winter, spring, and summer breaks by providing them with a fulfilling educational abroad experience within just 10 days.

We don’t want students to choose between a job, internship, or a study abroad experience- we want them to do it all. In fact, 99% of GREEN Alumni say that TGP has refined their purpose professionally, personally, or academically. Alumni often credit TGP for helping them attain careers at companies such as General Electric, SpaceX, Tesla, Boeing, NASA, NREL, and more.
