Student Programming

Since 1993, Dragons has pioneered expertly led, comprehensive travel experiences for high school and college students.

On course, we learn by doing.

We travel like locals, live with families, apprentice with artists, and learn from scholars, sages and community-leaders. We access phenomenal beauty, engage deeply with local communities, and ignite our students’ curiosity.

Why Dragons?

Our programs are designed to help young adults develop self-awareness, leadership skills and global citizenship. We do this through our unique approach to course design:

Our Instructors

We hire experts and empower our instructors to craft itineraries based on their personal in-country experience and the unique interests of their student group.

Small Groups

A Dragons group consists of 12 students and 3 instructors. This 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio ensures that each student receives individual mentorship.

Immersive Experiences

We have long-standing relationships in communities not frequented by tourists, and each course employs nine program components to ensure deep and meaningful connections.
