Hello Educators,

Hello! My name is Natasha Weisz. I'm the Outreach Coordinator for the non-profit organization called GEEO. Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting as many teachers as possible to travel abroad over their summer vacation and then share their experiences with their students upon their return to the classroom. Our programs are customized to fit the needs and interests of teachers and participants have the opportunity to earn professional development and/or graduate school credit.

GEEO is offering 13 different travel programs for the summer of 2011:
India/Nepal, China, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey/Syria/Jordan/Egypt, Ethiopia, South Africa/Mozambique/Zimbabwe/Botswana, Morocco, Argentina/Uruguay/Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica and Guatemala/Belize/Mexico.

Educators have the option to earn graduate school credit (3 credits through Indiana University) and professional development credit while seeing the world. The trips are 8 to 23 days in length and are designed and discounted to be interesting and affordable for teachers. GEEO also advises teachers on how to find funding to subsidize the cost of the trips. GEEO provides teachers educational materials and the structure to help them bring their experiences into the classroom. The trips are open to all nationalities of K-12 and University educators and administrators, as well as retired educators. Educators are also permitted to bring along a non-educator guest.

Detailed information about each trip, including itineraries, costs, travel dates, and more can be found at GEEO can also be reached 7 days a week, toll free at 1-877-600-0105 between 9AM-9PM EST. To sign-up for GEEO's listserv, please send an email to with the subject line "subscribe."

If you have any questions about any of our programs, please don't hesitate to call/email me.
