Educational Benefits of Travel
Not all education can and should happen in the classroom. There are times when traveling is the best form of education, as scholars can get some personal and educational benefits from travel. From learning about other cultures first-hand to seeing where historical events took place with their own eyes, educational travel gives scholars the opportunity to deepen their understanding of art, science, history, and culture in ways they never have before.
Boy’s Lab will partner with EF Explore America to provide scholars with three life-changing educational excursions during their three-year learning cohort experience. EF Explore America’s philosophy is: the best way to help scholars gain new perspectives and build skills for the future is through experiential learning. Every EF Explore America tour is designed to:
Gain perspectives through experiential learning
Foster an appreciation for different cultures
Enhance critical thinking and problem-solving
Develop skills to navigate new experiences
Bring classroom lessons to life
"Just remember the world is not a playground but a schoolroom. Life is not a holiday but an education. One eternal lesson for us all: to teach us how better we should love." - Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
