About Discover Corps

Year Founded: 2004

Discover Corps is a new way to travel. Our authentic, off-the-beaten-track itineraries plug travelers into the daily lives of local people. Our connections, including our partnership with the National Peace Corps Association, allows for people-to-people connections that provide unique insights into a country and its culture. Whether it's learning to cook a regional delicacy, helping out at the village school, or sharing stories over cocktails with a local artist or activist, our trips across Asia, Africa, and Latin America give travelers unparalleled access to local communities.
