The team at Brightspark has helped thousands of teachers and students travel the world on education and performance tours each year. On all our tours, safety is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve taken extra steps to help ensure your security during these unprecedented times. Our team of travel experts is constantly evolving and developing new protocols in response to COVID-19.
As part of the WorldStrides family, we have assembled a cross-functional team we call the Back to Travel Task Force early this spring, and we have been working to help you travel with confidence ever since. The Task Force leverages decades of experience across our company to assess the safety of the destinations we travel, survey site openings and closings, understand new protocols and regulations from our partners, and create training and detailed safety plans to manage the risk associated with COVID-19. The Back to Travel group is led by Chief Experience, Health & Safety Officer Terri Morgoglione. This team monitors CDC and WHO guidelines and receives guidance from The George Washington Department of Emergency Medicine – the same professionals who staff our Doctors on Call program. We are closely monitoring the evolving standards of the education community and the travel industry to continually update our plans with the latest information on COVID-19.
