Trips Inc.™ is an award winning organization that has established an outstanding reputation for quality service to our travelers. Credit for this goes to every one of our chaperones, therefore a number of factors are taken into consideration when selecting chaperone candidates:


Experience, skills, and qualifications

Work in the I/DD field is helpful but not required to chaperone with Trips Inc.™  We provide fun, nurturing vacation opportunities designed to promote growth, independence and adventure to each of our travelers. Our chaperones include college students, nurses, retirees, family members of travelers with special needs, recent college graduates, school teachers, counselors, as well as program directors and residential care providers in the I/DD field. Basically, anyone who has an affinity, love and interest in working with individuals with special needs.


Personal and employment references

Our chaperones are required to complete an extensive application to apply. References and recommendations from other persons who are current or past Trips Inc.™ chaperones are taken into consideration. Employment references, supervisors name, number of years on the job and work duties help us to understand your background and qualifications.


Positive attitude and enthusiasm on the job

This is one of the most important aspects of becoming a Trips Inc.™ chaperone. Our goal is to provide our travelers with the best vacation experience. This is accomplished by having chaperones who care about our travelers, who care about having fun and who care about interacting positively and respectfully with our travelers and other chaperones.

Factors influencing which chaperones are selected for trips

The number of travelers registered for a particular trip regulates the number of chaperones that are required. Traveler demographics are very important: a trip with a high number of male travelers will require more male chaperones. Male chaperones room with male travelers and female chaperones room with female travelers.


International/Hawaii Trips

Trips Inc.™ chaperones who have demonstrated the highest level of attention and commitment to our travelers are selected for our international destinations, cruises and Hawaii vacations.  Traveler demographics and chaperone expertise are factors in the selection process for these trips. Most of our international trips are staffed by our Tour Group Leaders.
