Customized short-term travel programs for middle and high schools

Travel is how we educate

We work with educators to develop innovative and immersive learning experiences that inspire students on their path to becoming global citizens.

What is a global citizen? To us, it’s someone who:

All of the curriculum we create, the programs we deliver, and the experiences we curate are intended to inspire global citizens. We believe that you can learn many things in a classroom, but it’s real world experiences that allow you to put these lessons into practice and shape who you are as a person. For this reason, and many more, Insight focuses on creating non-traditional learning experiences for participants of all ages.

Our approach

Our travel programs challenge the traditional narratives; instead of going abroad to do things for people, we travel abroad to learn things from people. Our travel programs are rooted in local leadership and built on partnerships with local stakeholders. 

A commitment to safety and quality

At Insight, safety is our top priority. Before each program is approved, we’ll answer any and all questions you may have to ensure that you feel confident in our risk mitigation and safety procedures. Each year, we undergo intensive risk assessments in each of our locations in which we operate. We take thorough precautions to maintain the physical, emotional and mental health of each participant while travelling abroad with us.

As part of our risk mitigation strategy, all our High School travel programs include:

If a medical emergency should arise, our in-country team and facilitators are there to support students and teachers with obtaining medical care. When developing an itinerary, our team ensures that each location offers access to emergency medical care.
