What Will You Find in the Greenheart Travel Atlas?
The Greenheart Travel Atlas is an interactive guidebook alongside five videos where you will find three main topics covered:
Traveling and living abroad provides life-changing learning experiences that help people to grow personally, and tangible examples for future resumes and job interviews are important to identify as they happen. The Atlas will provide reflection and journaling activities to help you reflect on how you are growing as a person.
As you navigate your new host country you will likely run into things that confuse, anger, delight, scare, or amuse you! All of these new things can be overwhelming and the Atlas provides activities to help you process these feelings and experiences. From dealing with culture shock to putting yourself out there and completing challenges like “eat at a restaurant and order in your host country’s language without an English menu” – we’ll help guide you through your cultural adventure abroad.
