What happens with your referral
When you pass along the name of another teacher to lead a travel program, we’ll assign them to one of our Travel Specialists who will reach out to those referrals by phone. They’ll make the introduction that you provided WorldStrides with their information and then help that teacher get a travel program started in their school. If your referral decides to start promoting a trip in their school, they’ll be eligible for a $1,500 WorldStrides Scholarship
to help make that first trip possible for even more students.
What makes a great referral
& how to maximize your referral rewards
With a little thought and effort, you can ensure that your referrals give you the best chance at earning Rewards Points. Here are a few tips from our Referral Pros:
Think outside your school. Since you already have a travel program going at your school, you’ll want to think of another educator at a neighboring school in your community. Also, don’t limit yourself to teachers in just one field. History and science teachers are great, but we have lots of Program Leaders from all disciplines.
The best teachers to lead travel programs are just like you – passionate, energetic, and well-liked by their students and peers. Teachers who travel on their own or with their friends and family make great candidates to lead travel programs for their students, too.
Tell your referrals how much fun you’ve had on your trip. Let them know how much you love traveling with WorldStrides, how fun and inspiring the trips are for the students, and how easy it really is. Most important, let them know we’ll be reaching out and for them to expect our call.
We’ll do our best to keep you informed of the status of each of your referrals. If one of your referrals starts a travel program, you’ll be the first to know to congratulate them. The more you stay connected to the status of your referral, the greater your Rewards Points will grow.
