Creating impact through opportunity
At EF Education First, people are at the heart of everything we do. Each day we connect people to new places and ideas, providing culturally immersive education and helping our teachers, students, and travelers discover more about themselves and their place in the world. We believe in human connection and the power it holds to change lives, which is reflected in every itinerary and program EF offers.
The places where we live, work, and travel are part of EF’s soul. With hundreds of EF offices and schools all around the world, respecting and benefitting local communities is critical. We remain committed to providing economic, social, and environmental benefits to all of the communities we interact with, and we seek to collaborate with them to support local economies and preserve local cultures.
We’ve made significant progress in the sustainability of our programs and tours by embracing eco-friendly practices, supporting local conservation efforts, and reducing and recycling waste. We are committed to continuing on this path by continually improving our operations, working with our vendors and suppliers, and leveraging our expertise in experiential education to help ensure a more sustainable and peaceful future for all.
