IMPRESSIONS OF VANGUARDS X

WHAT’S VANGUARDS X?

WHY VANGUARDS X?

As explorers, educators and entrepreneurs we combine our passion for adventure travel and social entrepreneurship with our ties to grassroots communities and lcoal and international organizations to connect young people to Thailand on a deeper level.

 

Through urban and rural, community centered adventures we aim to sensitize and inspire young people through the work of entrepreneurs and innovators and their roles in advancing not only their own potential but that of the greater good. Instead of asking what do you want to do in the future? We want to explore the question of “what problem do you want to solve? Our mission is to help organizations achieve their educational goals and provide the most memorable experience for them and their participants. Every program can be individually crafted and enriched through talks, workshops and real life experiences to maximize learning, fun and impact.

OUR PROGRAMS

Urban Dynamics takes you through Bangkok’s diverse cultural realms and addresses the struggle between government policies and the preservation of the city’s old town communities and heritage. We also examine and exchange with local social entrepreneurs on their approach in tourism and hospitality to help preserve and empower local communities.

This unique and fun adventure takes you along the coastal provinces west of Bangkok. We learn about the life, challenges and aspirations of fishermen and do a whole range of fun activities with their local community enterprise that was born from the ruins of shrimp farming and is now dedicated to restore the local mangrove forests and the traditional way of life.

Ignite Amphawa is a two-day adventure to Samut Songkhram to engage with children and youth in remote riverside communities and to get inspired by talks of Thailand’s young startup entrepreneurs.

Genasia is a youth travel and education program designed to help organizations who are aiming to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for the ASEAN region.
