Are you or your teen looking for a fun study abroad program that kicks international education up a notch?
I recently heard from the folks at Project World School (http://projectworldschool.com), who wished to make me aware of their program offerings for this website. It sounded like an intriguing organization, and as a former travel agent and educator, I found that the words “World” and “School” placed next to each other made me sit up and take note “real quick”!
Hands-on, Global Learning
I suppose the most concise way to describe PWS is to say it’s a temporary, international, hands-on learning opportunity for young people. Several distinct learning communities form from the unique global classroom experiences that the folks at PWS carefully plan; six such communities are planned to come together in 2018 alone. These overseas retreats, which each last from approximately two weeks to a month, have been offered each year since mother and son team Lainie Liberti and Miro Siegel founded the organization in 2011.
Participants are, by and large, “unschooled” or homeschooled teenagers and young adults. The program could also be attended as a sort of way station to augment a young person’s gap year between high school and college. Since a participant can apply up to age 25, this would even be a great program for recent college graduates.
