Learn. Experience. Connect.
Travel with Vive l'expérience for enriching authentic experiences around the world. Our mission is to go beyond the typical sightseeing trip: our participants meet and interact with local people and participate in hands-on workshops. Educators collaborate and design curriculum for use in the classroom upon our return. Travel programs are currently available for language teachers. We will soon offer teacher-led student trips, trips for teachers of various disciplines, and small-group adult trips for non-educators.
RSVP for our next informational Meeting!

“I am thankful for all of the families that opened their homes to us to share a meal, that kind of insider’s view is priceless and hard to access when traveling.”
