I never went on a study abroad trip while I was in school, so I figured that I had missed the boat. Little did I know that there are educational travel opportunities for people of all ages. Now probably wouldn’t be a great time for me (new wife, new puppy, new apartment), but maybe it would make sense later in life. If I do end up doing an educational travel adventure, I’ll definitely take a look at Road Scholar. They are a Boston, MA based non-profit that “offers 5,500 educational tours in all 50 states and 150 countries.” The organization was founded as Elderhostel in 1975 “to provide people over the age of 60 with low-cost educational and cultural programs,” but they seem to have committed to the Road Scholar branding as of late. My guess is that the word “elder” wasn’t helping them out in terms of getting people to sign up for their programming.

The Road Less Traveled

In a lot of ways Road Scholar looks like a for-profit company–there are quite a few companies that do very similar stuff; however, they’ve decided to make it their mission to inspire “adults to learn, discover and travel” by offering opportunities “to discover the people, culture, environment, and history of the countries visited through in-depth lectures, course-related field trips, cultural excursions, and extracurricular activities.” Road Scholar has programming options for every location, interest, and activity level imaginable. Just check out their website to see the breadth and depth of experiences that they have available. If you love what you see, visit Road Scholar’s Internships page. Right now they’re looking for a paid Marketing Analysis Intern and unpaid interns in both their Boston, MA and Brattleboro, VT offices.
