Custom Travel Program Development
Each program will be built from the ground up and will be driven by the goals and values that you have defined through the initial consultancy. Our programs are not prescribed or scripted travel programs, but rather highly personalized to your needs and goals. Our involvement in the program development will go as deep as you see fit. From flights, insurance, logistics and itinerary planning on the back end, to curriculum, safety and risk management, sustainability and social responsibility on the front end, our goal is to set you up for success and send you confidently on your way across the globe.
- Educational Programming: Our programming is the most valued asset in a partnership with BlueDotOrg. Our goal is to help you define you learning objectives and navigate the curricular connections between your community and those of your international partner. Next we will collectively determine the methodology that is most appropriate for your partnership (project-based, language-based, research-based, cooperative, discovery-based, etc.) and build a pre-program curriculum and assessment procures that will allow you to track progress. This is a fluid, collaborative and open-sourced process and we are committed to the highest quality educational programing for your partnership.
- Safety + Risk Management: With over two decades of experience managing international travel programs on four continents, BlueDotOrg has you covered when it comes to safety and risk management. Starting from the moment participants sign up for the program to the moment they return home, rest assured that our risk management and prevention protocols are as thorough and advanced as they come. From our research and vetting process during the initial consultation with all partners, to trainings and capacity building of leadership teams and facilitators, to our dedication to local emergency response procedures, safety is our number one priority. Our goal is to enable participants to focus their attention on the program goals, outcomes, and the cross-cultural experience.
- Social Responsibility: BlueDotOrg was formed because of our unwavering commitment to Social responsibility. We aim to enroll various local partners in our programming (providing supplemental training around safety and risk management, and educational programming as needed) in an effort to diversify the positive impact of each community exchange. We place intercultural communication and collaboration at the forefront of all partnerships and respect the diversity of perspective and values that make each international partnership unique. Additionally, Our goal is to bring local and international communities together in a way that is as transparent, mutually beneficial, and purposeful — yielding sustainable returns for all partners and collaborators.
