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.
Insight was founded in 2013 originally as a small university student initiative. We noticed that students were struggling to find global relevant hands-on experience that is so often required in today's job market, even for entry level positions.
With a desire to provide students with ethically sound programming, we created mutually beneficial partnerships with locally run organizations and local universities, providing students the unique opportunity to intern, study and travel, all within the same program. Our pilot cohort departed from Kampala, Uganda in May 2013.
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.
We are proud to have had hundreds of travelers participate in our programs abroad. We've grown from operating in a single country, to hosting participants in over 6 different locations (in 5 continents) across the world today. Our rapid growth can be attributed to our unique approach to education, travel and cultural immersion. Our philosophy, and our practices are simply different.
