Receive Great Perks

Free Travel for Teachers
At WorldStrides, we know just how hard you work to positively impact your students’ lives. That’s why teachers travel free with a minimum number of travelers.

If you’re new to WorldStrides, you can also join us on a free International Teacher Convention to experience our services firsthand. We’ll introduce you to the sights, culture, food, and history of exciting destinations and show you what makes us unique.

Additional Free Spots for Spouses and Friends
Your spouse, fellow teachers, and/or friends can also travel free on your student travel program when you hit goals for additional full-paying trip participants.

Cash Stipends, Scholarships, and More
When you follow our proven Recipe for Success recruitment program, we thank you with additional rewards, in whatever form works best for you: cash stipends, gift cards for school supplies, or student scholarships.

Free Professional Development
Our accredited status as a school means you can receive up to 35 points/hours of professional development credit. We can also offer you low-cost graduate credit. Only an accredited organization like WorldStrides can help you grow professionally. Ask us for more details.

Refer a Friend, Earn Rewards!



Refer a friend—it’s a great way to earn more rewards!

You’ve impacted your students for a lifetime. And now, you can have an impact on even more students by introducing educational travel to fellow teachers. More students will have the opportunity for travel to change their lives as your referral starts a program in their school and you’ll receive these fantastic rewards:

  • $500 or 500 Reward Points for each referral who travels with 5-14 participants.
  • $1,000 or a FREE International Convention (1500 Reward Points) when a referral travels with 15+ participants.

Please note that the person you refer must not have traveled previously with us as a program leader, chaperone, or assistant; they cannot be traveling with you on your tour; and they cannot be currently planning a trip with us. To be eligible for rewards they must enroll a group of at least five full-paying participants, and they must travel within three years of the date they were referred. Only one referral bonus is payable per tour that travels with us.
