The Alumni Travel Program extends the Punahou values of curiosity, conversation, critical thought, and life-long learning to real-world travel. This exciting program provides alumni the opportunity to explore new cultures and gain global perspective. With inspiring destinations as their backdrop, alumni from around the world bond with old and new friends through shared experiences.
