Why Study Abroad?
Through the Wanderlust Council, selected students will have the opportunity to learn about the various benefits of cultural education, study abroad education, and local and international travel education. Monthly programming will also link travel to the student’s current high school curriculum using the core educational categories in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math). These tools will ensure that the student is being prepared both for college and future career paths.
Currently, African American males make up less than 2% of annual study abroad statistics among undergraduate students in the United States and are less likely to benefit from the following:
- Enhanced Career Opportunities
- Graduate School Admissions
- Personal Development
- Higher Starting Salaries
- Improved Communication Skills
