Dear parent:

You are key to what we hope to accomplish at Students Going Global. We cannot meet our ultimate goals for students here at Students Going Global without you and your support. We want to give students the greatest chance for success, which requires your invaluable role in their physical, mental and emotional health and well being. Your high expectations, involvement, nurturing, and commitment to your child’s education and well being will set him or her on the path to unlimited potential and can make all the difference.  You are truly invaluable in your ability to shape a child and produce magnificence, and we thank you for all that you do.

Therefore, we are pleased to offer your son or daughter this opportunity to become globally literate and to travel abroad. Students Going Global is a charitable, nonprofit organization that provides stellar students in underserved cities opportunities to develop a global mindset and to experience life changing Educational Tours Abroad.

You can rest assured knowing that safety is key at both Students Going Global and its partnerships with reputable educational tour providers. Your son or daughter will be in good hands with a 24 hour tour director who meets us at the airport, a 24 hour group leader, 1 adult chaperone for every 6 students as well as local tour guides, all working together to provide support and protection around the clock so that all your son or daughter has to do is focus on learning, having fun, and getting the most out of their Educational Tour Abroad.

Prior to traveling abroad, we want our student participants to be well informed travelers because an open-minded, well informed, smart traveler is the best traveler. We, therefore, recommend that you and your son or daughter visit the  website, www.travel.state.gov. It offers tips for traveling abroad along with travel warnings, alerts, immunizations, etc. It would also benefit your son or daughter to enroll in their Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Traveling abroad doesn’t have to be confusing if students know the right things before they go. Please click on the link below to access an alphabetical listing of countries, which includes information on passports, immunizations, medical information, and conditions abroad that may affect your son or daughter’s safety and security.

We thank you again for your support and the impact that you have made as a parent in your son or daughter’s life that has culminated into your son or daughter being selected for this opportunity. Congratulations and please view the links below to help your son or daughter prepare for their trip abroad.

With warmest wishes,

Sharreen Hardy
