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.

In 2013 we will be running travel programs for the following organizations: Oregon Geographic Alliance (OGA), The University of Texas at Austin and www.teachingtraveling.com. If your organization or school is interested in providing a travel program for your members and/or faculty, please contact GEEO and we can create a custom program for you.
