Perspectives Programs

Experience new cultures. Come home with new perspectives.

WorldStrides Perspectives programs put high school students at the very heart of new cultures and ideas in nations around the world—up close and personal travel experiences that last a lifetime.

We immerse students in lifestyle, culture, and community. Going beyond sightseeing with authentic experiences—new foods, new friends, and new points of view.  Getting out there, in the wide open, opens eyes.

Explore. Discover. Become.

A chance to soak it all in A chance to soak it all in

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it! View more

For Educators Icon An interactive approach to learning

Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—gets students actively involved in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their tour directors allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.
