Who We Are

Our History

Destination: Earth was founded by Jud Yaski and Steve Juba,¬†two avid world travelers with a passion for creating true connections with the people they encountered. Having years of experience traveling, they decided to create an experience based on a simple principle: Through¬†giving back during adventures, both the travelers and the people they encounter reap rewards that far exceed either parties’ expectations.”

That idea has blossomed into coordinated interactive journeys throughout Asia, Africa and North America, engaging a volunteer project with every departure. Destination: Earth is excited to explore new areas, meet new people, and create new partnerships with corporations, non-profits, and individuals who wish to make a lasting impact in the world we live in.

Our Mission

Be Responsible: We strive to incorporate green travel in all our adventures. Whenever possible, our restaurants, hotels, and transportation is dedicated to practices and programs that pay respect to and lessen our footprint on our delicate environment.

Have Fun and Give Back: We believe that you can have a playful, exciting experience traveling abroad while transforming the lives of those you visit for the best. Many organizations either focus on tourism or volunteering. We feel you can gracefully combine the two for the good of our world while making your holiday even more extraordinary.
