What is the Apto Global Guide Community?

We are a community of authentic humans from around the world who believe in connecting across cultures, “speaking human,” and being a part of a community that is unlike any other online. By promoting authenticity and democratizing language, culture and destination-based knowledge and services, so that the local people can represent themselves and so that we can all learn together experientially.

As Apto Global Guides, we help to lay the foundation for meaningful connections and a community of belonging in the Apto app by creating authentic videos about our experiences, interacting with and authentically moderating content and conversations, and managing groups and meetups, that expand our awareness of ourselves and the world around us.

Why Should I Become a Global Guide?

As an Apto Global Guide, you can help others to feel at home no matter where they are or who they’re with. You can help them to step out of their comfort zone and experience a whole new world by giving them the confidence and skills they need to thrive, while allowing your own passion for culture, language and travel to shine – whether in front of or behind the camera!

You will also connect with people from all over the world, make new global friends of your own, and be a part of a community that believes in making the world a better place for everyone. 

And, oh yeah, let’s not forget that you can even earn travel rewards, Apto swag, gift cards, and other perks along the way.

Also, if you are already an “expert” in this area – for example a language teacher, intercultural coach or local travel guide or destination service provider generating income or involved in non-profit efforts, this Community is here for you! 

As Apto continues to grow, there will be opportunities to partner and grow your existing business or organization. Becoming an early Global Guide is a great way to influence how our Exchange develops, or contact us at aptoexpert@aptoglobal.com to learn more about how you can get in on the ground floor of Apto’s marketplace development.

How Do I Get Involved?

There are a wide range of ways to get involved, so you can choose what works best for you.

There are four levels in the Global Guide Community. They are based on the amount of time you would like to spend in the app connecting across cultures on a weekly basis. 

Only have an hour or two to spend in the app each week? Become a Bronze Global Guide! Fully dedicated to this cause and motivated more by monetary rewards or internships with 8+ hours to spare each week? Become a Platinum Global Guide! Your options are endless and your incentives level up as you do. 😉
