The Beyond Borders program provides youth in the United States with a tangible means to reach out globally.
Through a three part process that encourages knowledge, skills and engagement, JustGO! introduces students to the vision that international friends and travel are within their reach; promotes the idea that being a responsible member of the global community is both enjoyable and desirable; and provides a comprehensive road map for effective participation.
Our program works with high school students to have them grow beyond self-imposed limits, beyond the boundaries of local and cultural expectation and beyond the physical borders of the nation.
The Beyond Borders Program begins by imparting knowledge about the global community and having teens recognize that they are already valuable members of this interconnected society.
We teach students real-life skills they need to be responsible cultural citizens. Through workshops and an online pen-pal program, teens develop cross-cultural communication skills, and are offered the opportunity to practice these skills in a safe environment.
The third part of the Beyond Borders Program is fulfilled through international immersion. JustGO! mentors encourage students and work to have them enroll in programs that best fit their goals and interests. The mentor serves as a guidance counselor and a travel advisor to assist student and parents in making the right decision when it comes to overseas travel.
