Where Do I Begin?

Where you begin depends on where you're coming from. Many of our students join us as a part of their school group or club. Other students sign up on their own by applying to one of our open enrollment programs. So...

Are you traveling with a school, club or organization?

If so, your teacher or adult leader will be your main point of contact as you prepare for your Global Explorers experience. This person, who we refer to as your group sponsor will provide you and your family with all of the important information you need to get ready for your life-changing experience. Global Explorers will send all materials for you to your group sponsor.

If you're traveling with a group, be sure to LOG-IN to our online travel essentials system!
