More than 50 years from its humble beginnings, WorldStrides boasts a team of over 2,000 professionals throughout the world, each with their own enthusiasm for education and travel. Our casual environment is filled with passionate people who work hard and have fun at the same time. From summer picnics to team outings and employee travel programs, WorldStrides offers an atmosphere that our employees love to return to each day.
We nurture a supportive, positive environment by hiring talented individuals who share the belief that we are truly providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences to thousands of students and teachers each year. We invite you to join us in our mission to create experiences that enable our participants to view the world and themselves in new ways.
Education and personal growth are the heart of WorldStrides’ mission – and they have been since the beginning. Founded in 1967 by a middle school social studies teacher from Chicago who discovered the incredible power of education outside the classroom while traveling to Washington, D.C. with his students, the company has since grown to become a leader in experiential learning for students of all ages throughout their lifetime learning journey.
Everything we do is designed to foster student and faculty engagement—from on-tour LEAP activities, to world-class performance adjudication, to customized global engagements. Our goal is to provide moments that delight and open up the world of learning. Learn more about our accreditation, and the team and philosophy behind it.
With more than 50 years of success providing over 9 million students with outstanding experiences, our track record is unrivaled. Our network, knowledge, planning and industry-leading infrastructure - like 24/7 support and Doctors on Call - provide the confidence and peace of mind that only come from experience.
Our team is truly passionate about making each experience easy to manage from A to Z. We’re there when needed, and if the unexpected happens, we bring a can-do mindset to get things back on track quickly. Our relationships stand the test of time because they are real - we sweat the details, and it shows. – less
