UNDERREPRESENTED defines as anyone who comes into the world on an uneven playing field & doesn’t always get a fair share. The purpose is to help create responsible and responsive global citizens with a brand new world view. Founded by travel entrepreneur Tracey Friley, The Passport Party Project plants the seeds of teen travel abroad and study abroad, and firmly and unequivocally believes in the #powerofthepassport. Their goal is to give away one passport per year. They call this the 365 project which began on July 25, 2016. They are committed to: following through with their passport application process and making a lifelong commitment to #travelwithheart. It starts down the path to global citizenship and becoming a permanent Passport Ambassador by encouraging other teens to get their first passports.
