Training Weekends

Seeing is Believing!

Once you experience an ACIS tour and meet ACIS staff, you'll understand. Travel changes lives and with ACIS, you're in good hands. To help you feel confident leading your tour, we are happy to provide a free weekend trip to Barcelona or Washington, D.C. to familiarize you with all aspects of an ACIS experience.

During the weekend you'll stay in an ACIS hotel, eat at ACIS restaurants, meet ACIS Tour Managers and participate in ACIS activities. A training session will address common pre-departure questions and strategies to maximize student experiential learning. There will also be plenty of time to meet ACIS staff and other first-time group leaders like yourself.
