Make the WORLD Your Classroom

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. 

Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

 -Mark Twain

At Bon Voyage, it is our goal to not only teach you to communicate in other language, but also give you the opportunity to LIVE that language!  It is for this reason that we offer a variety of travel programs.  Our travel programs are unique to other programs in that we teach you to travel with intent which means traveling to connect with other humans and cultures, learn language, gain life skills, and step out of one’s comfort zone. When a person travels with intent, he or she experiences personal growth, empowerment, maturity, and a realization that he or she is part of a greater humanity.

 

Our Programs are Culturally Comprehensive and Unique

Our travel programs are designed to meet the needs of different age groups and language levels.  All of our programs include 9 months of course curriculum, preparations, and cultural challenges that facilitate a deep understanding of the cultures in which they are about to visit.  Our programs focus on communication and human interactions to build relationships and help participants discover the beauty of the world.  Our programs also promote introspection and personal growth.

We focus on the following core competencies set forth by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Cognitive:

To acquire knowledge, understanding and critical thinking about global, regional, national and local issues and the interconnectedness and interdependency of different countries and populations.

Socio-emotional:

To have a sense of belonging to a common humanity, sharing values and responsibilities, empathy, solidarity and respect for differences and diversity.

Behavioural:

To act effectively and responsibly at local, national and global levels for a more peaceful and sustainable world.
