Behind each Brightspark tour is a dedicated team committed to helping teachers and students travel across the world for an unforgettable & life-changing experience. The Brightspark Family comes from diverse backgrounds and travel experiences. Some of our team has been here over 25 years; that’s long enough to remember a time when we were using walkie talkies to communicate with teams on the road. What we all have in common is a dedication to every Brightspark passenger, because we know that these are the trips that are changing students’ lives.
Our team continues to work diligently to ensure that every coach that hits the road enjoys a seamless and effortless journey. Teachers know that when they partner with Brightspark, they are working together not only with travel experts, but with a compassionate team that understands safety and accommodates the needs of students.
We are educational advocates with a shared responsibility for being socially, environmentally, and fiscally responsible, both on tour and in the office. We prioritize our local and global communities by contributing to help support and enrich them. Our team has collectively dedicated time volunteering with local organizations like the Salvation Army and the Red Door Family Shelter, who work directly with marginalized communities with the aims of raising the quality of life for all. Our team supports and promotes the Mary Lynn Higgins fund, a fund dedicated to providing financial assistance for students who cannot go on tour because of various life circumstances. We continue to make environmentally conscious decisions to use resources carefully both in the office and while on tour and ethical business decisions to ensure that our partners share our values.
