by in Dealing with Crisis
The case of the Greek economic and social crisis is globally unique.
Analyzing this specific crisis and learning from the “rights” and “wrongs”, the “musts” and “should nots”, will strengthen your judgment and improve your decision-making ability.
This Adventure is not a “how to get out of the crisis” guide. Instead, it is about how to rebuild the necessary platforms that jumpstart a nation.
Upon arrival at the airport, our team will be there to greet you and welcome you to mythical Greece. You will attend the Welcome Reception and Orientation, which will officially signal the beginning of your two-week Adventure.
During the next seven days, you will attend interactive lectures, engage in vibrant discussions, meet inspiring instructors and special guests, and visit unique sites. Combining hands-on learning and cultural immersion, this learning experience will challenge your mind and introduce you to a new way of thinking.
In the following four days, you will embark on a cruise and explore the Aegean Archipelago, visiting six majestic islands. During this time, you will work on your group projects while having fun under the Greek sun, traveling turquoise waters, lapping against white sandy beaches.
Upon your return to Athens, you will experience “Athens’ City Beat”. Take your time to appreciate this modern metropolis which lives the moment and delights your senses.
Your Adventure concludes with the “Pitch Session”. During this session, you will present your projects, gain valuable feedback, and receive your Delta Report, that highlights your leadership potential and sketch your career path.
In the end, we collectively gather our thoughts, reflect on the experiences we lived, and realize that we have taken yet another step on the journey to becoming citizens of the world.

Note: Although the Prescience Adventures are the same for our high school and college participants, the delivery and emphasis is adjusted to reflect the objectives of our participants. High School and College participants form different and distinct groups which follow their own itinerary.
At the high school level, studying abroad indicates independence, motivation, and a desire to have new experiences and meet new people. For our high school participants, Prescience Adventures are geared more towards gaining new skills and knowledge with the potential to shape their individual goals and directions. High School participants learn about topics of interest to them, while at the same time are immersed in the culture of the country they are visiting and having FUN! This experience will strengthen their college applications; but even if their path after high school leads to travel, the military or joining the workforce, the Prescience Adventures will provide them with the confidence and global perspective that will benefit them in any future endeavor.
While the cultural immersion component is still strong, for our college level participants, there is more of an emphasis on what overseas study can do for their CAREER progression. The locations and curriculum for the Prescience Adventures are specifically tailored to the issues and objectives reflected in the Adventure. College level participants learn how to navigate uncertainty, maximize opportunity, and pursue the career and life they want. In other words, they learn how to make “work” work for them.
