Studying abroad is an awesome opportunity! We want to give the world to our next generation of global citizens, safely!

Hundreds of study abroad students shared stories and feedback on what they wish they would have known before their trips in order to have safe and rewarding experiences. Their feedback formed the basis of Travel HEROES Safety Training. The Student Youth Travel Association lists Travel HEROES as a safety resource.

Study abroad programs can license Travel HEROES administration privileges to manage and support their delegations independently. Travel HEROES Study Abroad training is provided to student programs by Depart Smart Org, a 501c3 nonprofit. Earn the Depart Smart Seal of Approval for your program by providing standardized study abroad safety training to your students – an ounce of prevention can save a life.
