Student Travel Manager

World Leadership School

About the organization

The mission of World Leadership School is to partner with K-12 schools to reimagine learning and
create next-generation leaders. We do this by taking students out into the world and coaching
teachers to bring purpose to learning.

World Leadership School has over a decade of experience working with K-12 schools to design and
deliver immersive partnership-based travel programs in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the USA. We
see travel as a powerful tool for guiding students towards lives of purpose and helping educators
transform classrooms.

Our programs focus on community immersion and follow the paradigm of "disconnect, de-center, and re-envision." They range from 7 to 21 days and take place in 12 locations around the world, and three locations in the United States. Students go through a pre-trip curriculum before our program, and we work with teachers to design classroom curriculum around each program.
