Virtual Learning Journeys

Due to COVID-19, YPT Global Edge has cancelled our International Travel Preparation Sessions, as well as our 2020 travel destinations.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t experience these destinations virtually!
Join us on one (or all) of our Learning Journeys, based on our 5 Pillars of Service: Education, Careers, Entrepreneurship, Sports, and Culture.
We are sure that these sessions satisfy some of your wanderlust and show you places that you never thought of visiting!

About Us

YPT Global Edge encourages children to find their place in the world through education, sports, entrepreneurship, career, and cultural immersion.

Our mission is to expose and educate our youth to the world.

Our Global Travel Program asks youth to venture out across the globe so they can mature into young adults who see the world through a broad lens.

Each student is expected to choose a destination that fuels a passion or stretches them out of her comfort zone, ensuring their travels will be a transformative experience.
