Benefits for ACIS Teachers Traveling to the U.S. or Canada

We want you to know how much we appreciate you organizing an ACIS trip to the U.S. and Canada. Here are some of the ways we say thank you!

Be Our Guest on a Teacher Conference

Enroll enough students on a U.S. or Canadian trip and you will be our guest on one of our teacher conferences. ACIS Teacher Conferences are an invaluable chance to share ideas and gain fresh perspectives from educators who share your commitment to global learning. While at your conference you will:
  • Meet with ACIS staff and educators from around the U.S., including experienced group leaders, who will share their tips and advice.
  • Discuss how to integrate your curriculum and teaching goals into your ACIS trips.
  • Share ideas for bringing the lessons and experiences of educational travel back to the classroom.
ACIS Teacher Conferences are also an excellent way to discover and learn about new destinations. Participants enjoy exclusive sightseeing tours, round-table dinners and breathtaking sights. And while no two conferences are exactly alike, each includes airfare, accommodations, breakfasts, excursions and more.

Qualify for a teacher conference by organizing groups on a U.S. or Canada travel program as outlined below.

If You Can't Get Away, Choose the Scholarship, Trip Upgrade or Cash Option

Not sure you can travel on an ACIS Teacher Conference? No problem. You can forgo travel and instead choose a scholarship to award to the student (or students) of your choosing. It's a great way to grow your group. This benefit can also be applied as a Trip Upgrade to be enjoyed by the whole group. Or, how about some cash? If you prefer the cash option over a Global Conference or a scholarship, we'll send you a check.

Whether it's travel, scholarships, upgrades or cash, there's a reward for everyone!
