Founder's Message: COVID-19
Love for our Global family is at the heart of everything we do, and your safety, comfort, and well-being will always be our highest priorities.
There has been a lot of unpredictability and concern regarding COVID-19 and the best, most responsible courses of action. Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the situation, especially as it relates to travel, through the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control. For most, if not all of us, we have never experienced a situation quite like this before, and are seeing now, more than ever, how interconnected we all are.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate this unknown time we’re in. As far as postponements for the upcoming summer programs, we deeply regret that due to the ongoing and increased challenges presented by COVID-19 our Summer 2020 programs will be postponed. We have evaluated current recommendations and locations before making this decision and have contacted each global participant as the decision was made. As of now, we’re following the advice of the experts at the WHO and CDC and are remaining optimistic that the precautions we are all taking now will be successful for the following summer.
Please know every decision we’re making as a company is handled responsibly and based on everyone’s health and safety, globally, and we are doing our best to minimize the impact on communities around the world. For the well-being of everyone, we hope that this passes quickly and that we’re able to travel with you soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to read more on how we are encouraging everyone to “stay globally interconnected” during times like these. After all, understanding the world, being aware of the people and cultural differences around the world and promoting the positive large scale change throughout the world is what makes us Global Citizens.
Lastly, our hearts and prayers go out to the families and lives hugely affected by the outbreak of the coronavirus. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out — our Global Team is standing by to help either by email or phone (+1 855-55 GLOBAL).
Thank you for being apart of our Global community!
