The SAGE Advantage
We Support Educators
There are few jobs more challenging and more rewarding than being an educator. Educators work tirelessly designing and perfecting curricula in order to inspire students to think more critically about the world and their role in it. At SAGE, we work with teachers and global educators who are passionate about what they do and what their students will gain from their time abroad. Whether it’s a service learning trip or a cultural immersion program we work WITH you to design a custom itinerary that supports your curriculum and educational objectives. Tell us where you want to go and what you want to learn, and we will support you every step of the way.
We Understand Students
Just as at your schools, we are proud of the students we have the privilege of working with. Globally minded and socially conscious, SAGE students represent what we as an organization are trying to accomplish: creating an accepting global community that values unique cultures and traditions. We also understand the unique challenges and the enormous responsibility of traveling with students. The SAGE staff supports both our students and their trip leaders throughout the trip planning process and throughout the journey.
