From our home offices in Massachusetts, we explore Boston’s wealth of universities, historical sites, and cultural landmarks.
During this program, students learn about the greater context of events leading to the American War for Independence. We critically examine how the ‘founding myths’ of the United States influence current US society and politics, developing a more nuanced understanding about the role of history in shaping current thinking. All students explore Boston together, including visits to the Museum of Science, Faneuil Hall, the Freedom Trail, as well as private tours of area universities.
Potential Program Themes
“My goals were to learn about post-conflict Colombia and step out of my comfort zone. These were fulfilled each and every day through activities, reflections, and first-hand experience.”— Julia D. , Student, GEBG Colombia 2016
“With its emphasis on empathy and general intelligence in planning, Envoys has quickly emerged as a premier global program provider. They are well worth the attention of any of our schools.”— Paul Miller , Former Director of Global Initiatives, NAIS
“The Envoys staff has been amazing. I have bonded with each of them in different ways and they made the trip to Colombia nicer that I expected. Envoys helped me open myself up to interacting with the locals wherever we traveled!”— Illeana G. , Student, Deerfield Colombia 2014
