Classrooms Without Borders

CWB Programs stand out because:

  • We empower our educators and students to experience history deeply, personally, and intellectually;
  • We create people to people encounters between our teacher/student participants and change agents in Israel and Europe;
  • We cultivate a community of dedicated educators who learn together and share insights. This cross-fertilization of ideas promotes educational excellence;
  • We enable our participants to intensify their exploration of their field of expertise;
  • We challenge our teachers and student to examine and grapple with moral and ethical dilemmas facing other societies;
  • We help our participants integrate their experiences into the classrooms upon returning from the travel seminar

Our participants return to their professional environments energized, inspired and motivated to translate what they learned and experienced to their students.

What our participants have to say…

Administrators benefit from the experience by gaining a broader understanding of cultural differences among students and their families. They gain greater insight and support for the importance of including multi-cultural curriculum in their schools. Travel abroad also provides opportunities for personal growth, leadership development, and cultural sensitivity which are vital skills for administrators.
