Educational Travel Programs for Students

New York Times Student Journeys offers educational travel programs for middle school and high school students. The programs focus on destinations The Times has covered, where students can benefit from an insider’s view as they explore themes and topics associated with The Times coverage of local issues. Students completing seventh or eighth grade are eligible to participate in middle school trips, and students completing ninth through twelfth grades are eligible to participate in high school trips. Among the Journeys designed for students in grades 9–12 are “D.C. to Houston: Aerospace Technology and Space Exploration,” “New York to London: The Business of Sports,” and “Silicon Valley to South Korea: Technology and Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.” Middle school programs include “Switzerland: Science Innovation in the Swiss Alps,” “Oxford: An Introduction to Journalism,” and “California: Water Conservation, Sustainability, and the Environment.” A complete list of the Journeys, with descriptions, is posted online. Students can expect a collaborative group experience focused on each program’s theme. Group leaders and a New York Times expert will guide students as they choose a culminating project related to the theme, prepare the project, and present it to their peers at the end of the program. The Putney Open Door Fund, a nonprofit foundation with the purpose of providing support for young people seeking educational summer experiences, considers scholarship applications from students applying to these journeys.
