Finances are often one of the biggest obstacles to young people experiencing student travel. Our team at NationsClassroom wants all students to be able to gain from the amazing experiences offered on a school trip.


Please join us for a Student & Youth Travel Association Webinar next Monday to learn proven tools and tips to help your group fundraise successfully. 



WEBINAR: Monday, October 30, 6 – 7 P.M. EDT

“How We Helped 800 Students Participate in Educational Travel:

Proven Tools and Tips”



Carrie Olson, Ph.D., researcher and teacher, will offer a presentation on the fundraising structure and techniques that she used to help 800 students from a low-income neighborhood take part in educational trips to Washington, D.C. and beyond. 


The session will equip you with:

  • An understanding of how and why you need a structure and a philosophy for an effective fundraising program.
  • Ideas for applying these strategies to your own school and community.
  • The benefits and drawbacks of creating your own 501(c)3 nonprofit for student travel programs. 

Dr. Olson also will answer questions and offer insights to help solve fundraising challenges during a Q&A session and she will share her fundraising handbook template, which you could adapt for your own programs.


After the presentation, Carylann Assante, Executive Director of the Student & Youth Travel Association (SYTA), will share information about scholarship opportunities for providing young people access to travel experiences that would otherwise be impossible.
