Together we plan to collaborate on a number of fronts to work on the challenges and issues facing education. Our refer-a-teacher program ($1,000 Travel Scholarship) was created to reduce the cost to parents and schools, and improves quality of service in cases where kickbacks are paid by other student travel companies directly to teachers.
Additionally, when a school travels with GO through PET, a soon to be named PET foundation will receive $200. As this balance increases, the foundation will have the resources to address a number of challenges facing educational institutions and their teachers.
GO Educational Tours wants to reduce the cost of student travel. Any Teacher / Organizer or school that books and travel a student group tour before July 31 2013 will receive a $1,000 Travel Scholarship applicable to their tour.
– Book A Tour before March 15 2013 and receive an additional $500 scholarship for your tour.
Try us, see the difference.
We train our tour leaders to be the best tour leaders for student groups.
They are education students who want to work with young students and share our passion for education and travel.
We do not pay kickbacks to organizers. We don’t believe in them.
They inflate the cost to the students and we want to reduce travel costs to students.
In fact, Refer a Teacher now and if they book get a $1,000 Travel Scholarship. We apply it to your student group tour when you book with us.
GO is also working on developing other destinations and programs. They can also customize a tour to any destination you may wish to explore.
They are diligently trained to be the best tour leaders to engage students and share important information to complement the tours on-site, to make sure the tour group is safe, and that the tour is conducted smoothly.

RETIRING AND RETIRED TEACHERS
One important issue that concerns PET is the looming retirement of a high percentage of teachers in the next ten years, a void that must be filled by recruiting new, young teachers. We also hope to address the issue of retiring teachers who would like to remain involved with teaching, and will entertain the thought of enlisting the services of retired teachers to help with GO Educational Tours’ efforts.Opportunities may include creating pedagogical content for tours, or becoming GO Leaders (tour leaders) for international programs that are educational in nature.
