wdc-2Pathways In Education takes students on a six day, five night civic immersion trip to Washington DC. By studying and analyzing historical figures and the impacts of their actions, participants are encouraged to develop their own leadership styles and become advocates of change in their own community.wdc-4

Throughout the trip, students will be asked to complete workbook activities and essays and engage in personal and group reflection about how history impacts their lives today. At the end of the trip, students are asked to reflect on and share how these lessons can inspire them to leave their own mark on history.

Pathways’ DC trip includes a lot of sites and activities, showing students as much of our nation’s capital as possible! Students will stay at a conference center located on a historic former college campus. Cafeteria food is available on-site, along with open grounds for chaperoned recreational activities.
