At MEA, we care deeply about personal growth and education for all regardless of economic status and  offer generous financial aid for many of our programs.

When you engage with MEA, you become part of a community of people from around the world who are asking the same questions you may be asking yourself:

  • Why am I feeling stuck?
  • Where can I get inspiration for what's next?
  • How can I meet others with the same questions?
  • And, have fun while doing it?

From Our Alumni
“After 20+ years as a CEO I was burnt out and had no vision or energy for my next chapter. One week in Baja reenergized me and I emerged with an inspired vision for my 50s, 60s and beyond.”
