Educational Tours Abroad

“A mind that is stretched by new experience can never go back to its old dimensions”  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

 

Here at Students Going Global, we recognize the value in outward bound educational experiences and utilize Educational Tours Abroad, Youth Development Programs and Community Outreach Projects to support and empower disadvantaged youth. We offer six year-round, global education centered and student centered Youth Development Programs that focus on 21st century skills training (global competence, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving).

 

Each program provides an opportunity for students to travel abroad, and low-income students receive scholarships. All six programs run simultaneously and meet with students for two hours once a week. Students receive global literacy training, help develop and participate in Students Going Global’s community outreach projects and participate in local, national and international outward bound educational opportunities. Each program encompasses the overall goals of Students Going Global and develops the whole child (academically, socially and personally).

 

Upon program completion, all students receive signed certificates of completion, recognizing them as Global Citizens for traveling abroad with Students Going Global and fulfilling the program requirements. Our ultimate goal at Students Going Global is to become a national organization, empowering disadvantaged youth nationwide to become globally minded, community conscious and solution oriented leaders, thinkers and doers who become major contributors to their communities and to a global society.
