We know that experience is invaluable. While textbook knowledge and classroom environments are traditional, working methods for learning, it’s simply not enough. There is something to be said for having the opportunity to get up close and personal with your academics, interests, and passions: it is a critical step that is missing from academics. So, cue The GREEN Program.
A new model for education abroad driven by a desire to provide purposeful, hands-on industry exposure at a fraction of the time and cost.
Students travel with The GREEN Program to find a meaningful educational experience that fits their busy schedule and advances their career goals.
TGP students are...
- Frustrated by the lack of short-term options
- Stressed about the lack of direction and purpose in their degree and future career paths
- Disappointed there aren’t more opportunities to learn about sustainable development
- Seeking hands-on opportunities that aren’t available through traditional education
- Feeling overwhelmed by the necessity to stand out in the job market
- Lacking connection with peers who share similar passions and interests
We provide short-term, accredited programs in Iceland, Peru, Japan,and Nepal. By using the world as our classroom, our model expertly balances sustainability-focused course work, exclusive industry exposure, and bucket-list adventures. We specialize in providing access to leading industry facilities, from Iceland’s largest Geothermal Facility to Fukushima’s Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
Since 2009, we have traveled with more than 3,000 interdisciplinary student leaders and young professionals from 400+ universities and 70 countries around the world. Our programs provide hands-on, global experiences at the fraction of the time and cost of traditional study abroad. We challenge our cohorts to solve real-world sustainability challenges in the form of innovative business solutions. Beyond our program experience, we are one of the only program providers to offer leadership development and resume-boosting opportunities after students return home. In fact, 95% of TGP alumni stay engaged in sustainability efforts and have gone on to work for forward-thinking companies such as NASA, Tesla, SpaceX, and more.
