Cross Cultural Journeys: Parcion Member Portal
Parcion Wealth Management, Cross Cultural Journeys and Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation - a partnership for a more sustainable way of traveling
For people interested in our planet and connections to the humans living on it.
Cross Cultural Journeys provides socially and environmentally responsible travel experiences for individuals and organizations interested in global awareness, indigenous wisdoms and societies at the crossroads.
“Being The Change you wish to see in this world” can happen from afar. But to actually experiencing, tasting and being showered in the nuances of the culture around you when you travel allows your soul to be nurtured by it, making your journey more than just another fancy vacation.
If you are a Parcion client looking for high-end travel experiences while also making difference in the global community you visit, Cross Cultural Journeys and Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation can help you achieve just that.
Please call CCJ's CEO Cilla Utne today to discuss how you can create a journey tailored to your specific interests and investment needs. Cilla can be reached at 206-280-5360, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you book yourself on one of our open enrollment trips, or book a private journey for your party of 5 or more, Cross Cultural Journeys allocates a percentage (depending on trip cost and size of group) to our sister nonprofit, the Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation. All of the global projects CCJF sponsors either have a social justice component - typically focusing on youth education - and/or focus on sustainability efforts that help mitigate climate change and its impacts on the planet and its people. Common for all such projects is that they are started and run by local people who live there. They know their needs and we support them in achieving their goals.

Common for all such projects is that they are started and run by local people who live there. They know their needs and we support them in achieving their goals.

Give us new ideas!
We invite you to see this as a long-term partnership. We also invite our clients to educate us on organizations that are making a difference in this world as well.

Currently, we are supporting projects in many reaches of the planet: schools in Nepal, education programs in India, intercultural communities in Guatemala, a rug co-op in Morocco, emergency refugee support for those displaced in Ukraine, and our list continues to grow.
