Baltimore, Maryland — Expanding Boundaries International’ City Explorers program scheduled their 2021 ‘Around The World’ virtual tours for Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. EST beginning on May 8 and continuing up until June 12. Participants will interactively explore Germany, Botswana, Japan, South Africa, Russia, and Sri Lanka, giving them the remarkable opportunity to learn more about these countries and their cultures despite current restrictions and health/safety concerns.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have had to adapt quickly. Social distancing has made it hard to advocate learning through travel and exploration. But Expanding Boundaries International promises to provide students with an education in diversity, no matter the circumstances! EBI’s ‘Around The World’ virtual tour is a revolutionary way for students to connect, travel, and learn during the current social distancing climate.
“I am so excited to be able to execute some form of our EBI City Explorers program, despite this pandemic. I also cannot wait to connect with everyone online! We originally planned to take the students on a field trip to foreign embassies in Washington D.C. — because of health and safety concerns, we had to cancel,” said Leticia Nortey, founder of Expanding Boundaries International. Program Director Alexis Kouser added, “This is our way of, hopefully, remedying the situation for our City Explorers until we can take the trip that we planned.”
The exact dates are as follows, May 8th, May 15th, May 22, May 29th, June 5th, and June 12 from 1 pm to 2 pm EST. Anyone is free to join from anywhere in the world! Students can register for this event on the EBI website. Details on how to access the tour will be sent out via email before it begins. The event is FREE — however, donations are greatly appreciated, and any business partnerships are welcomed. EBI is also gifting a free ‘Exploration Box’ to the first 50 U.S. students to register before April 15th.
