Founded in 2015 by Ernestine Lyons we are a business that operates with a social enterprise element. A journey consulting LLC that also serves as a non-profit with a mission to empower children to discover the importance of learning a foreign language and traveling. We work as a liaison between foreign language, social studies teachers and students seeking a deeper understanding of how language and travel can impact their lives. Students gain confidence, connection and a greater sense of self-worth. Additionally, Linglobal serves as a compilation of travel resource for Millenials and Baby Boomers of all income levels, looking to travel abroad. Linglobal provides the necessary expertise to complete passport applications, visa applications, and a tailor-made approach to the most immersive and adventure-filled travel experience possible.
But we don’t stop there, what does it mean to be local when you’re a global citizen? It means you care about your community and take an active role in making sustainable changes there and contributions to solutions. Linglobal’s strategic planning and development coaching aims to build a city secure in its future, grounded in its roots and hopeful in its current existence. Linglobal’s civic engagement and community involvement mission is to create healthy and beautiful environments, built on inclusionary growth, economic opportunity and an atmosphere of trust. Our travels around the world have taught us that cultures rich in art, innovation, and prosperity are ones that are inclusive to all and encourage trades, skills, and entrepreneurship. The answer is simple—human beings are the same everywhere.
Founder’s Personal Mission
To be a global citizen, to leave a legacy of exploration and peace by seeking a rational understanding of differing perceptions. Staying curious and relentlessly seeking knowledge. Ernestine’s definition of being a global citizen is bridging gaps of understanding, adding value to the world while making connections. Be involved, engaged and see what is possible by bravely pushing your limits.
“Connections through culture and languages matter. Not only do I want to travel the world learning languages, but I want to show young people that its okay to be diffrent, to be smart, be outspoken and to walk your own path. That is my philosophy” –Ernestine
