Mobile Classroom Moving With You

Learn while you travel, do good and connect.

If you have been bitten by the travel bug you know how it feels to have a constant urge to travel but at the same time asking yourself: How could it be done in a more authentic way?

Travelling has become a way of escaping from reality, but why not shift this idea using reality as a way of shaping ourselves and the world for the better? This is the purpose of ON BOARD, the metaphor of a school bus that uses travelling as an engine to learn.


Learn in a foreign country
ON BOARD creates 30 days learning journeys in a foreign country, you learn while you travel. You meet local mentors that will share their expertise with you through workshops or experiences. You also learn from one another: Every ON BOARDER becomes a student and a teacher - sharing talents and skills with a group of travellers and the communities you visit. In this space the needs of the locals and organizations meet the gifts of the ON BOARDERS to create a positive impact as active observers.

Slovenia in September 2015
Slovenia is their second destination of choice. A group of 18 curios seekers will be travelling around the country for 30 days meeting more than 20 mentors and visiting breath-taking locations. The total experience costs between 2,000 and 2,500 USD - everything included except for the flight ticket. They cover all transportation costs (2 minivans), stay at incredible places (sometimes hostels, guest houses, local farms), always eat delicious food (as organic and local as possible) and create an environment where you learn what interests you and teach what you know.

Why Slovenia? See their video, and you will get the answer.


So, are you ON BOARD?
The team around Marcela and Alexander is waiting for you or your friends to apply and live with them this outstanding experience.

How To Apply
Visit their website and fill in the application form. They will reply within 1-2 days and let you know if you made it to the next step: a personal interview with the ON BOARD team to answer your questions, get to know each other better and talk about mutual expectations for the journey.

Guatemala and more destinations
You can’t make it for Slovenia? Don’t worry, make sure you book your agenda to come with ON BOARD to Guatemala in November this year or sign up for their newsletter to receive program updates and notifications for the 2016 experiences!
