Donations That Made a Difference

Bryton Chikukwa From Zimbabwe

Through a series of fortunate events, we were able to connect with a motivated student named Bryton who was from a small town in Zimbabwe called Marondera. He was a mature and responsible young man, juggling his studies, looking after his younger brothers, helping out on the family farm, and playing for the school basketball team. Quest worked with a group of donors and volunteers to make Bryton’s travel and study program possible. Bryton was accepted for enrollment at Newcomb Central High School in upstate New York and he lived with the school principal and his family.

We reached out for donations to help pay for Bryton’s tuition, airfare, medical insurance, clothing and pocket money for a 10-month high school program. We sponsored all of Bryton’s costs up front, and, through our generous donors, we were able to provide Bryton with everything he needed, including a laptop computer and an airline ticket to travel to the Quest office in San Francisco.

Here is the rest of Bryton’s story....

Here at Quest, we focus on providing educational experiences where students can learn about cultures, religions, customs, and the successes of other countries. Our students live with host families, giving them the opportunity to develop their own perspective with their real-life experiences. Quest has launched a new scholarship program run by volunteers. Your donation can help provide educational opportunities for students who cannot meet the financial obligations of a study abroad program.

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” – Anthony Robbins

We are passionate about being able to provide opportunities to youth and adults across the globe to learn languages, immerse themselves in new cultures and to raise awareness about the importance of cultural diversity.


Why Donate to Quest


The American culture and people, as viewed by the rest of the world, are often portrayed in certain ways by media. Our programs are designed to encourage international students to experience first-hand what America represents and to share their knowledge with friends and family back home. In reciprocity, our American students travel abroad to study and live and to share their America with the world. Bridging the divide between different cultures means exchanging our customs and views. Quest is fully committed to this mission, and we engage our students to act as Ambassadors for their country to help us promote cultural diversity.


Quest has "gone green". For the last 8 years, we have reduced our environmental footprint by going paperless. We have also invested in a Salesforce database that allows us to eliminate thousands of pages of application paperwork that were formerly being sent through international courier services. The reduction of emissions and the harvesting of trees is just one way Quest acknowledges the need to promote a more eco-friendly world. We encourage our partners, students and staff members to support us in a collaborative effort in recognizing the value of sustainability.


Quest’s local coordinators work diligently in their communities to bring awareness of our programs to American schools and families. Our families volunteer to host students so they can learn about different cultures and perspectives that influence their families and communities. Local Coordinators work in cooperation with U.S. high schools to bring cultural diversity to their student population. Exchange students help create a more diverse, enriching environment in American high schools where they act as a direct source of knowledge and cross-cultural understanding.


Quest gives scholarships to students from all over the world, including, most recently, to students from the U.S., Africa, Slovakia and Brazil. We are dedicated to providing educational opportunities for students who cannot meet the financial obligations of exchange programs. We engage a team of volunteers to help us raise funds that afford underprivileged students the opportunity for education abroad. It is through these cultural exchanges that we build cross-cultural understanding and promote peace within our local, domestic and global communities.
