We recognize the importance of providing a diverse and inclusive tour experience to all our customers. Brightspark is committed to building educational programs and working with partners that provide a curriculum that is representative and as diverse as the students on our tours. We actively seek to highlight the historical and present-day contributions of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in the destinations we travel to.
While on tour, our Tour Leaders teach, mentor, communicate with, and ensure the wellbeing of all students. We provide our Tour Leaders with up-to-date training that is relevant to current topics and developments, as well as, ensure our Tour Leaders are using inclusive language, making all students feel welcome, and providing accurate information throughout the entirety of the tour.
As we travel with a large diverse group of students each year, we want all participants to feel represented and included in our tours. We are continuously adding content to our destinations that represent Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and LGBTQ(IA+) and other underrepresented communities, whether it be through monuments, attractions, or more encompassing historical stories.
We strive to support local businesses, specifically those owned by Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBTQ(IA+) and other underrepresented communities. Brightspark is committed to working with our destination partners to develop programs that highlight the importance of sharing and respecting all cultures.
