Finding a trip at an affordable price point for you and your students sometimes means requesting multiple trip proposals and spending time comparing and contrasting them to make the best possible choice for your program. So with multiple factors like quad occupancy, meals, motorcoach, and multiple deposits to juggle, how do you ensure you’re making the right choice?
Student travel is transformational, and we can prove it. A recent study by the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA) gathered quantitative data from a representative sample of U.S. teachers for a reliable measurement of the social impact of domestic and international trips.
The findings tell us that the travel experience of students triggers a process of accelerated personal development, contributes to better academic performance and improves social interaction between young people.
This past July at Texas Bandmasters Association in San Antonio, I caught up with former music educator turned leadership guru, Jeremy Spicer. Jeremy is the owner of SASI – The Leadership People, LLC., a student leadership consulting firm focusing on the empowerment of young leaders. Director's Choice and SASI have recently teamed up to offer Destination Leadership, an exclusive customized leadership training seminar designed for your students as part of your travel itinerary.
Below is an edited excerpt of my conversation with Jeremy from the TBA exhibit floor. Check it out and learn how SASI’s leadership philosophy and workshops can be a great compliment to your overnight itinerary for your band, choir, orchestra or dance group.
