Insight Global Education has been running diverse international learning experiences since 2013. We create immersive and career-building semester abroad programs for university students, short-term teacher-led experiences for school groups, and customizable group travel programs for educators and professionals.

2013

Insight was founded in 2013 originally as a small university student initiative. We noticed that studnets were struggling to find global relevant hands-on experience that os often required in today's job market, even for entry level positions.

With a desire to provide students with ethically sound programming, we created mtually beneficial parnterships with locally run organizations and local universities, providing students the qunique opportunity to intern, study and travel, all within the same program. Our pilot cohort departed from Kampala, Uganda in May 2013.

2014

In 2014, we developed a partnership with teachers in North America who were looking for alternative, global programming options for their students. With a focus on experiential learning and ethical engagement, we began running short-term programs for high school students in the Global South. We believe that educational programs can be impactful and can be culturally immersive for students, yet we different significantly from the more traditional practice rooted in volontourism and service learning. Our high school programs are conducted with a spirit of humility: we are there to learn from local, not to do things for them.

2017

By 2017 we realized that educators and professionals were also hungry to experience culturally immersive and mindful tours. In addition to university and high school students, Insight now works with teachers, academics and young professionals. We develop curricular resources and workshops for educators; we run professional development programs for educators and young professionals and beginning in 2019, we will begin offering immersive tours for those looking to travel ethically, and have fun at the same time, all throughout the Global South.

Present

We are prooud to have had hundreds of travellers participate in our programs abroad. We've grown from operating in a single countrry, to hosting participants in over 6 different locations (in 5 continents) across the world today. Our rapid grwoth can be attributed to our unique approach to education, travel and cultural immsersion. Our philosophy, and our practices are simply different.
