The Green Program

Education Abroad. Redefined. Reinvented.
The Green Program
Using the world as our classroom, we exist to give purpose and meaning to education, adventure, and life.

Created for students, by students, The GREEN Program as introduced a new model for education abroad. Our accredited, short-term model focuses on bringing transformative experiences to students around the world and unlocking doors to governmental, public, and private facility access, exclusive tours, and unique bucket-list experiences around the world. We are working with universities around the world to redefine what a classroom should mean - from lecture halls to studying climate change effects on the top of our world's glaciers.

As commitment partners to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, The GREEN Program exposes students to the heart and guts of these sustainability challenges and initiatives around the world.
