The New York Times Student Journeys and Putney Student Travel are visiting Monday, Nov. 21st in the atrium. They offer a wide variety of programs for high school students including Community Service in Latin America, Asia, and Africa as well as Language Learning in Europe and Latin America. For Middle School they offer trips to Costa Rica, Spain, New Zealand and Australia. New York Times Student Journeys offers opportunities for high school students to travel to fascinating places and explore themes associated with Times coverage of local issues—from social justice in the south, to the effects of climate change on a remote atoll in Fiji, to food security in Italy. Students benefit from the organization’s special understanding and insider’s view as they uncover and bring back stories from the field.
