Black Kids Travel
Passport Initiative

Young people deserve to experience the world beyond their current borders. Our mission is to make travel feasible, easier, and accessible.

Funded by BKT

Passport Initiative

The BKT Passport Initiative program aims to spark curiosity around travel by alleviating the financial barrier of procuring passports to our community. Getting a passport is tangible proof that travel is feasible and accessible. It takes things out of a dream land and puts it into reality.

We want people to realize that exploring the world is possible. Getting a passport can be that extra push some need to embark on their international journey, while for others, it opens up the window of possibility and striving for future adventures.

Please note that BKT covers the cost of a passport book for first-time passports only, not renewals or passport cards. 

Black Kids Travel Passport Initiative
