I love seeing students pursue learning outside of the classroom. There’s only so much that you can be taught—eventually you need to go out and start experiencing things for yourself. One of the best ways to do this is to travel. Not only does it teach you street smarts, but it also provides a vast array of learning opportunities that you would never be exposed to sitting at home. Travel is becoming more and more common for college students, and even high schoolers are starting to see the world in an effort to enhance their learning. Unfortunately, international travel isn’t accessible to everyone. Even no frills travel is expensive, which is why The Wandering Scholar was started. They’re a relatively new New York, NY based non-profit organization that “makes international travel and learning opportunities accessible to low-income high school students.” It’s a really cool idea that I hope catches on, because everyone should have the opportunity to see and learn about other parts of the world.
Because there is more to The Wandering Scholar than just enabling students to travel, their programs include Travel Mentors, Pre-Departure Planning, Documentation Projects, Trip Log and Blogging, Post-trip Workshop and Presentation of Learning, and Peer to Peer Recruitment. They really want to enable students to make the most out of travel experiences that could be once-in-a-lifetime. Now, The Wandering Scholar is an upstart with a super small staff, so landing a job with them right now might not be realistic. However, if you’re moved by their mission, then you need to reach out to them and see how you can fit in. They have positions for both Mentors and Interns right now, and it’s certainly possible that they’ll be growing their team in the near future.
