Continuing Professional Studies travel programs are geared toward working educators who want to broaden their knowledge through experiences in other cultures. While priority is given to Bank Street educators, others are strongly encouraged to apply. In the past, participants have subsidized these programs with staff development funds, PTA scholarships, and Cooperating Teacher Vouchers. Bank Street is a member of the Forum on Education Abroad.

I truly enjoyed getting to know a community more deeply. There were so many interesting people with wonderful stories to tell and I hope to cultivate that same ideology with my own students in their community. I also learned to step out of the box and take risks—something I’m always wanting my students to do.
