Smithsonian Student Adventures inspires students to become global citizens by providing them with international travel programs in the fields of cultural immersion, wildlife conservation, and leadership development. We offer a curious and compassionate approach to travel. Unlike typical tours, our programs are designed for a select group of high school students and their teachers who seek an authentic international experience that offers the opportunity to effect positive change at home and abroad.
When students travel with us, they become members of an international community committed to exploring and engaging with the world. Long after the end of a program, we continue to support our past participants serving as a valuable resource for students when they select a university, seek advice on college essays, consider further studies abroad, or search for employment.
Our team, based in the United States and in our host countries, works together to make sure our programs are safe, authentic, engaging, and affordable. Our program participants build strong relationships with our experienced program leaders, respected researchers, expert guides, and welcoming community partners, all of whom help to ensure an unforgettable experience.
