The Lopez International Student Travel Education Program (InSTEP) 
helps students broaden their understanding of the world and assume their roles as positive global citizens.

The Lopez International Student Travel Education Program (InSTEP) cultivates understanding, enthusiasm and lasting curiosity about other countries and cultures by providing Lopez students with opportunities to travel with teacher-led trips outside the United States.

Following generous private contributions to support this travel, a group of teachers and interested community members formed InSTEP (originally known as L.I.F.E. - Lopez Island Foreign Exchange) in 1997 to administer and add to these funds.
