GEEO Teacher Travel Programs
Travel the world, earn professional development credit, and bring global understanding into your classroom!
If you are looking to travel this summer you may want to take a look at www.geeo.org. This non-profit organization is dedicated to helping educators travel.
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. From the cacophony of mid-town Manhattan to the remoteness of western Montana, students are looking to their teachers for knowledge about a world that is not yet part of their own lived experience. By spending time abroad, forming international relationships and exploring overseas environments, teachers gain fresh perspectives that deeply enrich their students’ learning and global awareness.
GEEO believes encouraging teachers to travel is the best way to equip American youth with the knowledge needed to ensure a strong, positive global role for America in the future. Teachers often have the time and the desire to travel; we will help to make sure they can afford it.
GEEO runs subsidized trips all over the world! There’s still time to book your trip with GEEO before the June 1st deadline – the following trips currently have spots available:
