Fall/Winter Programs

Peace Works Travel Fall and Winter Programs

Our programs use techniques of visual literacy, service-learning, digital storytelling and entrepreneurship to give students agency over their work as sustainable peace-builders. The relationship between “learner” and “teacher” is inverted, revealing the many ways that a spirit of humble inquiry can yield skills mastery across cultures. Connecting with genuine people – survivors, artists, policy makers, activists, journalists and educators – teaches students to put a human face on the headlines. Radical empathy compels travelers to absorb the central lessons from each place, returning as ethically engaged citizens of a global community.

 

Our unique student and teacher travel programs available for Fall and Winter 2018-2019:
