"Tell me, and I forget, Teach me, and I remember, Involve me, and I learn."
- Benjamin Franklin
Adz Group is a pioneer in the area of international educational travel. The company provides participants with unique opportunities to not just learn about, but to truly experience other cultures so as to enrich them for life.
We offer cultural immersion experiences to help develop you into a more globally conscious individual by showing you how others think, live and act.
At Adz Group, our programs are much more than just a sightseeing trip. Each Program is designed that throughout their visit participants can develop valuable life lessons, explore a new culture, develop global partnerships, and learn how to become global leaders. Each program is catered to the interests and goals of our clients. Some other ways that we add value to our programs include:
- English Immersion: our lectures, classes and visits are primarily in English. Our Trip Leaders, many of whom are experienced ESL or Cross Cultural Exchange teachers, lead daily communication exercises and interact with the participants throughout the program. Our Trip Leaders are teachers, mentors and friends, not just tour guides.
- More than the "Must-See" Sites: we know – and will visit – the famous sites, but we work hard to find educational and fun ways for our participants to learn more about the daily life and culture of the places they visit.
- Local Contacts: our staff has lived and worked in our Program cities for years. We know the people, places and things that every visit would not be complete without.
- Interaction with Foreign Students: each of our programs offers a chance to meet with university or high school students on campus tours, meals, in homestays, or even shopping trips. We believe this is an integral part of the cultural exchange experience and have witnessed our participants form lasting global partnerships.
- Opportunities for Growth: our participants speak highly of the lessons they have learned, the people they have met and the experiences that they will bring home with them. Some of our primary goals include fostering personal growth, global awareness and confidence in our participants' ability to be future leaders.
- Leader in the Industry: Adz Group has been creating innovative programs for over 10 years. In 2014 we began coordinating the Explore Japan Program, a well established offering with a 20+ year history in multiple communities. Today, Adz Group offers a combined 30 years of experience in domestic and international education programs.
