Spring 2019 Update

Dear Community,

Over the past year, Students of the World, in partnership with CSpence Group, has secured contracts for our storytelling curriculum from leading universities, an entire school district and an association building a movement directly aligned with our values, developing a fee-for-services model to ensure we have the resources necessary to continue to grow.  Our nonprofit consulting practice is focused on how we can internationalize our communities and foster curiosity about the world beyond our – perceived and real - borders. This mission is what motivates all of our work dedicated to professional services for the community of creatives, educators and globally curious travelers that comprise our community. 

If you are interested in getting more involved in the work of expanding the programming and consulting services we offer, please reach out and share your ideas with us directly at daniel@studentsoftheworld.org or call us at (301) 337-1105.  We greatly appreciate the support of the alumni community and want to create more opportunities for us to connect online and in person at upcoming events and conferences directly related to our work.

To that end, we are pleased to announce that we will be a strategic partner and speaker at an upcoming conference where Students of the World was initially based – Austin, Texas – on August 16th.  Please join us at the first SmartCityPolicySummit.com at the Austin Central Library for a day of discussion about the shifting travel trends involving short term or vacation rentals impacting communities everywhere.  We will discuss how the community can come together to ensure better outcomes for residents and visitors alike. 

I think that our work - expanding empathy - is directly related to the success of this disruptive market force that is contributing to the growth of the sharing economy. But we can always do more to ensure these changes remain positive and beneficial through partnerships and promotion - storytelling - which is why we’re excited to be a part of the conversation. See you there!

Safe & Happy Travels,

Daniel
