The World

Join Our Adventure...

The World is a magnificent and unique opportunity to explore the entire planet in a small group of teens. This summer, The World will whisk you away to 13 cities in 7 countries, on 5 continents, in 29 days. Does that sound exciting?! Grab your passport...

Why the World?

The World is so much more than a summer trip. It’s a commitment to work with others to explore and solve global issues over a lifetime.

Private access to the Envoys network of speakers, professors, and global leaders – as well as peers internationally at schools and universities – means all Envoys students are part of a movement larger than themselves.

Make a difference in this world. Together.

Meet Global Leaders

As you travel around the world with us, you will engage with a global network of innovators, explorers, and changemakers. In small-group and 1:1 conversations, coupled with interactive exercises, you will learn what gives these leaders passion and what shapes their distinctive views of the world.

During our month of discovery, we will tackle major topics of global significance, bringing in perspectives from multiple stakeholders, and pushing ourselves to engage more responsibly and compassionately with our diverse and beautiful life on Earth.

Boutique Accommodations

Lodgings around the world have been carefully selected to expose students to a range of inspirational founding entrepreneurs and unique hospitality philosophies. Whenever possible, priority is given to boutique accommodations that prioritize sustainable practices to preserve the planet.

Behind-the-Scenes Access

Travel by private helicopter around the United Arab Emirates, experience a customized conservation master class in the African savanna, and share a meal with celebrated festival performers amidst ancient Greek shrines.

Experience an on-campus hang out with undergraduates studying at Harvard and MIT, a private tour of the Great Wall of China, an exclusive daybreak viewing of the Taj Mahal, and a night under the stars in the remote Amazonian rainforest.

From start to finish, The World pushes the boundaries of educational programming to uncover and reveal hidden gems tailored to teen travelers at every destination.

Curated Global Cuisine

Food is a window into culture, and we ensure that every meal has been carefully selected to enrich the mind, body, and soul. Eschewing the touristic restaurants, we experience dining curated by senior editors at Thrillist, the leading lifestyle brand for food, drink, and travel, and national restaurant critics for Air Canada’s enRoute magazine.

Your Personalized Curriculum

Envoys uses a proprietary inquiry-based curriculum model to tailor the travel experience of each student according to their chosen issue of global significance.

Diagnostic software, a thorough interview process, personal essays, and private conversations with issue experts give students agency in creating their own unique travel experience.

Personal Travel Concierge

The family of each participant is assigned a personal travel concierge to help manage the paperwork, packing and logistical requirements for this unique expedition in a manner fitting with your family’s lifestyle. During the program, your concierge maintains constant contact and a curated photostream, providing a clear communication channel and window into the exceptional learning journey.
