Independent Organizations, Aligned Values.

The Global Learning Collective is the first truly global consortium of educational organizations that share similar values, offer a personal connection to your in-country host partner, while providing on-the-ground expertise and local access in each region of the globe.


Everyone wants partners that are local experts in the area overseas, who are part of the local community and invested in its success. This can be very difficult to achieve with organizational consolidation and mergers, because often in those instances the heart and driving engine of the local organization is no longer local.


Each Collective organization strives to execute engaging and immersive education programs for students, with a specific attention to customization and flexibility that is unmatched.


Each of the Collective’s organizations is personalized, smaller, and mission-driven in the way that we design study abroad programming. These attributes are intentional, and built into the fabric of each organization. We believe fully in who we are independently, as well as who we are as a Collective.

Our Mission

To transform students through experiential learning, global education and localized support in all regions of the world.

Build your own program with the Collective, or join one of our catalog of offerings!  Any duration, any location, the Collective is your trusted resource for personalized, localized programming across the globe.
