Cultural Exploration Travel Program
"Discovering the World Beyond New Jersey"
At B.O.S.S. Mentoring we firmly believes that to enact change, one must first gain perspective.
That's why we created our Cultural Exploration Travel Program (CETP), which provides mentees with the opportunity to explore the world and discover their place in it. Through local, national, and international opportunities, our program encourages a deep interest in global exploration. By exploring topics that are significant to them, their communities, and the world at large, our mentees develop a sense of curiosity and responsibility for the greater global community.
Our mentees get the chance to break out of their cozy shells and embark on a journey of self-discovery, where they can dive into the heart of modern democracies and all their complexities. With every step of their adventure, they face both the thrill and obstacles of international travel and cross-cultural communication. We urge them to take bold moves, conquer their fears of the unknown, and immerse themselves in diverse cultures.
When we hop on a plane and jet off to foreign lands, we're not just racking up those passport stamps. We're also building bridges of connection that stretch far beyond our own backyard.
Whether it's making new friends, learning about diverse cultures, or sharpening their problem-solving and communication chops, international travel is an epic way to prep for high school or college and the adventures beyond. It's a chance to get their critical thinking juices flowing and become more adaptable and humble. Additionally, they will have a comprehensive understanding of both domestic and global issues. Best of all, it shows them that there's no limit to their potential, and that the whole world is theirs for the taking.
