Ardmore, Pennsylvania — The first lessons about foreign cultures and the world around us often begin in the classroom with the help of textbooks and teachers. To help teachers bring foreign travel and cultural lessons to life for their students, GEEO believes teachers should have the opportunity to experience worldwide travel firsthand.
In summer 2014 GEEO will feature several European teacher tours at www.geeo.org including programs in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Teachers can experience ancient ruins and historical sites, rugged hikes and haute cuisine, breezy beaches and even bedtime in a sixteenth-century monastery.
A special feature of every GEEO travel experience is the availability of discounts or travel grants for teachers at geeo.org , often in collaboration with academic institutions such as the University of Texas at Austin, New York University, Yale University and the University of Pittsburgh. Subsidized and discounted teacher travel at geeo.org is a core mandate of the GEEO mission.
By spending time abroad on travel adventures and educational tours from GEEO, teachers can enjoy a spectacular summer while gaining fresh perspectives that will help their students’ learning and understanding of our world.
Founded in 2007, Global Expeditions for Educators Organization (GEEO) is an award-winning U.S. nonprofit that helps teachers travel the world and bring back global lessons to their classrooms. Students look to their teachers for knowledge about their world. GEEO believes offering discounted and sponsored adventure travel to teachers allows educators to enrich their students’ learning, global awareness and compassion.
