We Help Teachers Explore the World!
Understanding the world today has never been more important to America's future. For most of us, that understanding begins at an early age, in thousands of classrooms across the United States. Students look to their teachers for knowledge about a world that is not yet part of their own lived experience. By spending time abroad teachers gain fresh perspectives that deeply enrich their students' learning and global awareness.
