Professional Development and Enrichment

Travel Programs for Educators 

These programs are designed for educators seeking to immerse themselves in order to grow linguistically, culturally, and gain new professional tools.  Each experience is tailored to the specific group.  Join one of our scheduled experiences or create your own!  If you have a group of 12 or more educators we can design a program just for you!

All of our teacher programs include workshops and resources that you can use right away in your classrooms!

All participants in our teacher programs can earn up to 50 hours of continuing education credits or clock hours for certificate renewal!  Additionally, during some of our programs, you can earn up to three graduate credits for an additional fee!

Educators are welcome to also join any of the Globetrotter Travel Programs and still receive Professional Development credits or clock hours!  The Globetrotter Programs are family-friendly and welcome ages 6 and older so educators can travel with their families!

Educators- Want to travel with us for free?  When you have 6 students register for any of our student programs, you can travel with your students or on one of our Educator programs for free!  Click the button to request more information!
