We've been in the Youth Development space since 1919 through our sister organization, the State YMCA of Georgia. Through that organization, we have long organized and offered trips, programs and conferences for thousands of young people each year. However, in 2017, it all changed with the Presidential Inauguration. On that trip, we took 150 students and had several school administrators on the trip. From there, what is now known as Education Travel Solutions was born.
Who are we? We are a group of individuals who are dedicated to ensuring that students have an opportunity to experience the subject matter through student travel. It's one thing to talk about the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but it's another thing to be "in the room where it happened" as it was put in the hit Broadway Show, Hamilton!
We are here to serve you. This is, after all, YOUR trip. Certainly, because of our travel with groups, we may know of some things we can suggest to maximize the effectiveness of your trip, but we are committed to achieving your objectives for the trip.
Our approach is to think like an educator--and through the lens of educational value above all. Then we will build in the rest of the details. Our goal is to be a single solution for your school (attending parent meetings, accepting payments, leading your trip, etc.) to make your job as the trip coordinator easy.
As a nonprofit, we are committed to providing excellent value to your students at an affordable price.
It is our honor to partner with your group for student travel!
