Our Health and Safety Commitment
A Team Approach to Our New Normal
Envision by WorldStrides leverages decades of experience across our company to assess the safety of the destinations where we operate programs, stay abreast of openings/closings, understand new protocols and regulations from our partners, and create trainings and detailed safety plans to manage the risk associated with communicable diseases, including COVID-19.
Following the assembly of a cross-functional Back to Travel Task Force in early spring of 2020, we worked hard to prepare all of our programs to run in 2021. After monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Camp Association (ACA), and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, as well as adhering to guidance from WorldStrides’ Medical Director, we’re pleased to share we had a successful summer, with numerous sessions of both domestic and international programs safely completed. We are committed to continuing these efforts into 2022, and to sharing information that impacts you directly.
The work this task force initiated will continue to be managed by the WorldStrides Health & Safety Team. This team will closely monitor the evolving standards of the education community and the travel industry, and we’ll continue to update our plans as new information becomes available.
Our Network of Safety Resources
Whenever you participate in an Envision by WorldStrides program, you can rest assured knowing that our long-time investments in health and safety are also in place, like:
- Nurse Protocols: Our Elementary and Middle School programs will have a nurse on-site for each day of the program and High School Programs will have a nurse onsite every 3-4 days of the program. General nurse hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m
- Supervision: We hire and train staff that are dedicated to the health and safety of each of our students. Our team will be available 24/7 to participants and their guardians. We will also have an overnight team member to monitor hallways and address any student health and safety needs throughout the evening.
