The Many Benefits of Travel for Children

Posted by Children First Foundation USA on April 11, 2012 at 10:40 PM

The benefits of student travel are priceless. Children who experience travel experience new found confidence, higher grades, stronger college applications, and enhanced career prospects. There are many more different benefits of travel for children. It also allows them to develop a more open minded mindset and increases their ability of collaboration. Travel can be a preventative measure for many different aspects of a child's life as they reach adult hood because it increases their awareness and allows them to view situations under a new light. Travel has also shown to increase intellectual capacity and emotional abilities. It has consistently shown to improve academic success.

In this article by H.M. Guffey a few of the benefits of travel identified are as follows:

  • Increased Flexibility and Adaptability
  • Heightened Geographical Awareness
  • Increased Intelligence
  • Marked Increase in Curiosity
  • Heightened Interpersonal Awareness

Michelle Kulas of Demand Media further discusses the benefits of educational travel for children in this article.

Public relations specialist and writer Karen Banes lists additional benefits of travel for children and students in this published article. Here is the list:

  • Improved knowledge of world geography
  • Knowledge and understanding of other cultures
  • The opportunity to learn a new language
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Improved career opportunities
  • Becoming more open-minded

 At at a time where our society reaches global maximization it becomes even more valuable and important to have travel experience. The International Student Travel Conference states that student travel and the exchange of ideas it encourages, contributes to education and plays an important role in developing greater international understanding. The Association for Tourism and Leisure Education along with ISTC have published an extensive bibliography of research and publications on student and youth travel.

If we give children more travel opportunities they will excel in ways that they, parents, and teachers never imagined. We must move forward in our society to encourage activities such as travel which lend themselves toward the development of skills that last a lifetime.

Children First Foundation USA believes that travel serves to increase the quality of life and standard of living of families while instilling culture within the household. We rely on the premise that travel enriches the lives of children and families by allowing them to experience travel for the purpose of learning about other cultures, history, art, music, opera, human rights and empathy awareness in order to encourage educational and intellectual development as well as to foster multicultural awareness.

Support our travel programs! You will help make a long term impact on the lives of students everywhere.
