WWW Trip Opportunities
What is Week Without Walls
Week Without Walls is an action packed week that encourages middle school students to pursue learning outside of the classroom. It is designed to give students the experiences that will inspire them to become caring, global citizens. Students will engage in sustainable service and/or gain awareness of issues that transcend national borders. They will develop an understanding of issues of poverty, indigenous peoples, and environmental degradation and preservation while simultaneously helping people and/or building up cultural awareness and sensitivity. Students will often plan and work as teams, strengthening their teamwork for a common goal of greater good. Week Without Walls is planned to accommodate every student by offering local and international trips with a range of activities.
