Teacher-Led High School Groups:
are typically comprised of 15 to 20 high schoolers from a particular high school, city, youth group, or extra-curricular club. Planning starts with a base itinerary, and once student interests are considered, our local staff find service learning projects for students. Teacher leaders form the group and WWAA helps to plan safe, meaningful itineraries that balance service learning with transformational sights, sounds, smells, tastes and thrills with wildlife, outdoor adventures and cultural immersion. The teacher in teacher-led groups performs a planning and supervisory function and travel expenses are accordingly covered by WWAA.
Field-Specific Faculty Led Journeys: are usually associated with a university or technical program. A travel concept is initiated by a faculty member in law, medicine, nursing, engineering, language studies, physical therapy, environmental sciences, political science, peace studies, religious studies, or recreational and alternative therapy studies (massage, energy healing, acupuncture) to name a few. Once contacted, WWAA works with the faculty member or educational leader from end-to-end to organize an immersive, authentic, itinerary. The group leader travels with students and has his/her travel expenses supplemented or covered by WWAA.
Education Journeys: are a hybrid and a specific field focus for WWAA travel. Groups are led by School of Education faculty and made up of students pursuing bachelors or masters in education. Groups get to "teach" and observe unique education system in destinations like India, Vietnam, Cambodia, or Sri Lanka. Like all our journeys, student and youth travel programs can be tailored to focus on certain interests and objectives, and all include a good mixture of nature, culture, and adventure.
