As a Reach the World traveler, you will write about your experiences abroad and post original photos and videos for a classroom of students in the United States. Unlike a personal blog, travelers’ journeys on the RTW platform are structured to easily integrate into a K-12 classroom environment. The average time commitment for a Reach the World traveler is about two to five hours per week.
PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible for a Reach the World virtual exchange, you must be currently abroad OR be planning to spend a minimum of six weeks abroad during the 2023-24 academic year. We are unable to accept virtual study abroad/internship applicants at this time.
If you are accepted and matched with a classroom, you will:
- Submit 1-2 articles per week (500-750 words each) to
the RTW website, as outlined in the journey itinerary designed in
partnership with your matched educator (NOTE: Virtual exchange journeys will vary in length, but are typically 6-10 weeks from beginning to end)
- Work closely with your editorial team to revise submissions where needed
- Video conference with your classroom 2-3 times during the course of the exchange
- Communicate weekly with your matched educator
