Teacher Travel Abroad

Hemispheres actively promotes opportunities for K-12 educators to travel abroad to build their own background knowledge and gain invaluable experience overseas. 

Short-Term Teacher Travel

To meet the demand of educators who want a quality travel experience, Hemispheres's centers frequently offer shorter programs abroad that combine an academic approach with a short, intense travel experience.  We try to keep these affordable for educators.  Announcements about funding competitions and grants that support teacher travel can be found on our Professional Development page.

Teacher Spring Break & Summer Trips

Hemispheres' constituent programs have conducted the following programs during Texas's spring break (usually the second full week in March), and during the summer. In addition to visiting sites under the guidance of an experienced, credentialled guide, groups are accompanied by an academic escort from the University of Texas who helps participants process the experience for their classrooms.
