Transformative Travels:  Exploring Greece

Participants in this program will learn about how travel affects the traveler. Students will explore not only the island of Ikaria and other places in Greece, but also how travel can be transformative for the traveler. Travel can change how people view themselves and the world around them.  Travel can lead to changes in people’s beliefs and lifestyle. Travel can be a source of challenge and inspiration. Students will participate in collecting data for a research project about how international travel can be transformative.
