Engaging educators from around the world in critical global issues while training new skills.
After 25 years of running rugged international travel programs for high school, gap, and college students, we have learned lessons, developed strategies, and honed our systems—and we want to share all that we’ve learned with you.
Our travel based Educator Programs offer professional development for teachers on subjects such as experiential education, global issues, and language learning.
Dragons Educator Courses are challenging and intimate experiences that push educators to discover a passion for experiential education, build new skills, explore travel ethics, and develop personal connections to issues of global significance. We train participants in cross-cultural facilitation skills and share strategies and resources for designing a comprehensive course curriculum.
Training modules include risk management, program and curriculum design, cross-cultural facilitation, and considerations for global community engagement. Sharpen your edge as an educator, and learn new skills to bring back to your classroom.
Deeply connect with local communities through unique, sustainable travel experiences in small, intimate cohorts. Expand your comfort zones with colleagues and build genuine relationships to people and place.
Through home-stays, visits with local organizations, and conversations with farmers, teachers, and youth leaders, immerse yourself in dynamic dialogue and rich perspectives led by experienced facilitators.
