connecting the dots of discovery worldwide

Travel is the best way to learn about the world and connect with others from all corners of the United States on a shared adventure. At the Global Intent, we're committed to curating immersed group travel experiences that bridges the gap between culture and connection while traveling to destinations comprising the African diaspora. 


It’s one thing to read about the world. It’s another to see and feel it come vividly alive inside our own selves. It's in every footstep taken. Every conversation spoken in a blend of native languages. Every flavor savored with each accompanying heartfelt conversation. Global Intent is turning strangers into friends and unfamiliar landscapes into cherished memories, contributing to a more enlightened and connected global community. 


We're excited to explore with you!

the global intent

What started as a travel group specializing in Global VolunTourism from the Black Millennial perspective has now expanded to a full-service travel agency that gives spaces for like minds to connect. Since 2015, we have specialized in “voluntourism,” a word we define as an integrated combination of intentional tourism, the genuine impulse to help, and wanderlust to experience cultures abroad.

Our Founder and Chief Experience Officer, Jada Davis, was born in the ambitious city of Memphis, so it is of no surprise that she is not a stranger to hard work. As a multi-faceted serial entrepreneur and travel enthusiast, she has visited over 20 countries leading global group excursions for thousands of travelers. As the child of full-time entrepreneurs, her love of travel started as a child while exploring the world, attending expos, conferences, and global forums. Since then, The Global Intent became the first black travel group to drive American tourism to Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Through her travel initiatives, Jada helps students in underserved communities with passports and travel grants so they, too, can gain a global perspective through one-of-a-kind programming and fundraising.


Our team of travel experts encourages travelers from diverse backgrounds to join the next adventure while understanding that the destinations are favorable towards locations that comprise the African diaspora. We're committed to responsible travel by choosing to buy locally in the countries we visit and contributing to service projects that will invest in the personal and professional development of the citizens.
