Description: GEEO is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting as many teachers as possible to travel abroad and then share their experiences with their students upon their return to the classroom. GEEO believes encouraging teachers to travel is the best way to equip youth with the knowledge needed to ensure a strong, positive global cooperation in the future. Our teachers often have the time and the desire to travel; we will help to make sure they have the means. By spending time abroad, forming international relationships and exploring overseas environments, teachers gain fresh perspectives that deeply enrich their students’ learning and global awareness.
