SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- People to People Ambassador Programs, the leader in global educational travel experiences, put its programs to the test with seven members of its Educational Advisory Board in China this summer and gained strong validation of the programs' contribution to experiential learning and cultural competency.

Members of the Advisory Board who traveled include:

  • Dan Domenech, Ph.D, Executive Director of American Association of School Administrators
  • Anne L. Bryant, Ed.D, Executive Director, Emeritus, National School Boards Association
  • William D. Waidelich, Ed. D, Executive Director, Association for Middle Level Education
  • Edward L. Davis, Ed.D, Executive Director of DECA
  • Kathy Hurley, Executive Vice President of Educational Alliances   Pearson Foundation
  • Diane Barrett, Vice President, Education, Gannett Publishing Services
  • Dr. Darla Strouse, Executive Director Partnerships, Development and Recognition for Office of the State Superintendent for the Maryland State Department of Education

The Advisory Board was formed early in 2012 to advise People to People on how to further enrich its programs' educational content and enhance experiential learning opportunities for students seeking an academic edge through global travel. 

"There is nothing like visiting another country to gain a broader perspective of others, and of oneself," said Anne Bryant, Executive Director, Emeritus, of the National School Boards Association.  "Traveling with U.S students, meeting foreign dignitaries, leaders and families and engaging with other schools opens the eyes of our young people. Witnessing the global stage from being on it, brings a rich and rewarding set of new skills and experiences to young people."

"We are learning of new and better ways to improve our curriculum from these academic leaders," said Tony Dombrowik, interim CEO for People to People Ambassador Programs. "We were able to gain their insights in a direct and powerful way by inviting them to observe high school delegations traveling in China this summer. Their positive feedback reinforced that our program content consists of a strong mix of education, travel and cultural immersion."

People to People programs scored 4.5 out of 5 in total with strong accolades around the focus on cultural immersion and the direct interactions that American students are able to have with their Chinese counterparts.
