ClearCause Foundation’s mission is to Protect Our Students Abroad by:

  • Creating awareness about the risks and lack of state or federal oversight in the big business of student programs in foreign countries.
  • Providing the tools, resources and information necessary to empower youth and students engaged in study, travel, adventure, goodwill and exchange programs abroad to be actively engaged in decisions affecting their safety.
  • Advocating for thoughtful state and federal protections, oversight, minimum standards, and mandated publically transparent reporting on the health and safety record of programs.
  • Ensuring every single one of them comes home safely with a rewarding experience.
