Update: May 11, 2020

At The Traveling School, we know that being a leader means taking a stand — being bold even when it feels hard. In that spirit, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our fall 2020 semester in southern Africa.

We do not take this decision lightly; we have continued to evaluate guidelines from the US State Department, World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and Prevention and our domestic and international partners. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is our number one priority, and right now there are too many unknowns to move forward with a fall program.

As an organization we are passionately committed to global citizenship and what it means to be responsible travelers. Our actions and decisions must align with this commitment.

We are thinking creatively about programming for next year and how we might provide opportunities for the accepted class of Fall 2020. And while we are not yet sure how that looks, we are excited about the possibilities.

Though there are many unknowns right now, we find strength and hope in what we do know. We know that confident and empowered young women can change the world. We know the world needs strong leaders to address the issues we will continue to face. And, we know that The Traveling School isn’t going anywhere.

The coming year will bring new challenges, there’s no doubt about that. But with the support of our Traveling School community, we will continue to create opportunities for young women to grow their voices, gain confidence and become global leaders. And once the world starts to heal, we will rise up stronger, bolder and braver together.
