In 2001, Jonathan Guy moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to San Francisco Bay Area to play college baseball. By 2004, he went on his first foreign trip to Japan and from that day forward his whole perspective on life changed. He had always been motivated to travel from his parents, brother, best friend, and mentors but what really influenced him to travel was going and seeing the world for himself.
By 2009, he moved to China where he embraced his community by working with students and families from all walks of life. After living abroad, Guy knew that he wanted to return to the United States to teach underserved students and to get them to travel to help other endangered and mistreated communities of people, environment and wildlife.
He believed if young people could take small steps by getting on a plane, they'd eventually make big strides across by flying across our oceans. Guy believes traveling and serving communities is one of the best ways to learn, grow and actively engage. When he started working at Castlemont High School, he told his his family that his goal at Castlemont High School was to transform lives by introducing students to an education that was both foreign and domestic but yet realistic and obtainable. PBC's gone to four countries and is headed to our fifth country in 2022.
"Traveling is its own education in itself."--Jonathan Guy
This trip meant so much to all of us but to Mr. Soto, he loved it so much he made a song out of it. We love you Trey from LA and we appreciate all that you have done.
