Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

59% of staff agreed

I am paid fairly for the work that I do relative to others within this organisation

G Adventures has 25 community projects in the destinations their travellers visit. They have just committed to launching another 50 projects in the next five years. All 50 social enterprise projects – known collectively as G Adventures for Good projects - are under development by G Adventures and its non-profit organisation, Planeterra Foundation. Together they will invest more than CAD$5-million in social enterprises over the next five years. G Adventures is constantly evaluating potential new G Adventures; For Good projects and these are selected according to the biggest impact in terms of community benefit and traveller numbers. The projects are primarily located in communities where indigenous people, women and youth have been disadvantaged by a lack of access to education, jobs and income opportunities.
