Global Exploration for Educators - Panama

Ed Forteau's picture

The Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that helps and encourages educators to travel abroad. GEEO hopes to make America more outward-looking by helping teachers travel and then giving them an effective way to share these experiences in their classrooms. We've shared GEEO with our readers before, in an interview with founder Jesse Weiz.   We've also shared one Teacher's Journey with GEEO.

GEEO is now taking reservations for an environmentally focused winter trip to Panama with the dates December 20th, 2009-January 2nd, 2010. GEEO is also happy to announce summer travel programs to India, Peru, Tunisia, Southern Africa (South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe) and China.

Educators can earn graduate school credit and professional development credit while seeing the world.  The trips are designed for teachers and include activities such as school visits and homestays that give participants authentic exposure to local culture. The trips are deeply discounted so as to be affordable to teachers.  GEEO also helps teachers find funding to subsidize the cost of the trips.

Detailed information about each trip, including itineraries, costs, travel dates, and more can be found at GEEO can also be reached 7 days a week, toll free at 1-877-600-0105 between 9AM-10PM EST. To sign-up for GEEO's listserv, please send an email to listserv[at] with the subject line "subscribe."
