Smithsonian Student Adventures provides meaningful international travel opportunities for high school students. We facilitate a fun, authentic, and perspective-changing experience for our travelers, with the safety, health, and well-being of each student at the forefront of our planning and operations.
Our comprehensive, thoughtful, and service-learning approach enables high school students to enhance their leadership potential through meaningful community service and immersive cultural interactions. Upon returning home, students often comment that they feel more confident, self-assured, and globally aware. Students are challenged and encouraged to act outside of their “comfort zones”, only to discover that they are more capable than they ever imagined. This notion of self-reliance, along with a more complete understanding of our global community, is priceless.
