Parents

Safe. Professional. Challenging.

We know safety is always a top concern as a parent, so we take great care in providing a secure travel experience. 

There are so many programs, and everyone will tell you they have the best travel experience. Do you choose this one or the other one? It’s really hard to please everybody right? So why choose us? 

While most programs focus on just the travel experience, we believe that a travel program that keeps the student entertained and intellectually engaged through purposeful magic while learning the social, cultural, religious, environmental, political and economic context is the key factor to make the trip successful.

Kaleidoscope provides a unique opportunity for your teenager to experience travel while developing high-level analytical skills highly relevant to future university studies and professions in our globalizing world. Not only will your child have fun, they will also grow intellectually through experience supported by the scaffolds of our carefully designed program.

Kaleidoscope takes students far beyond a typical study abroad experience, and our programs will influence the way your child thinks for the rest of their lives. Studying abroad has become a normal resume builder for students working to enter universities, but participation in a Kaleidoscope program will allow your teenager to shine with demonstrated growth in high-level thinking and conflict analysis skills. 

RiskManagement

We recognize the inherent risk in traveling and living abroad, and we take every step to allow for a fulfilling experience while also keeping our participants safe and healthy. We address this in five ways.

1. Student Preparation

Prior to and as a part of the program orientation, we ensure student preparation on safety measures and emergency response plans specific to their travel location. We want students to feel comfortable and know that they are safe. It is our priority to make sure they are confident about the steps we would take together should an unexpected emergency or health issue arise. In this way, we make sure students have a fulfilling and fun program.

2. Staff Training

Alongside our well-designed programs, we prioritize the training of our staff to provide only the best service. All staff are highly trained to handle health and safety concerns and to make sure students have an incredible experience.
Safety is our upmost concern at Kaleidoscope, and we are proactive in prioritizing the health and safety of our participants.

3. Clear Communication Channels

Prior to, and throughout the trip, we provide consistent communication to parents, educators, and students. For each trip, we design an emergency response plan specific to that trip, and we clearly communicate this plan to parents, educators, and students so that all are ready and aware in the rare case that an emergency response would be necessary.

4. Careful Selection of Travel Locations

We define conflict widely, and while it is important to our program to expose students to different types of conflict (social, political, environmental, religious, etc.), we never take students into violent areas of conflict where their safety would be compromised. All of our programs are designed by closely working with area experts, and we carefully choose locations and accommodations with the upmost awareness and with safety at the forefront.

5. The Best Insurance and Emergency Health Care

All participants are provided with the best insurance, including evacuation and emergency health care coverage, for each trip.
