Challenge by Choice Triumph by Trying

” Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education. “

Mission

JOSA Mission & Vision

Jelajah Outdoor Student Adventure (JOSA) has developed tools that will help our travelers mature as global leaders before, during, and after their travel program.
This simple, engaging curriculum is meant to spark discussion, frame the group’s experience, and prepare participants to travel ethically and effectively on our programs now and into the future. At its core, the first step toward global leadership is developing intercultural competence – “a set of cognitive skills that support effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural contexts”.

The first stage of our curriculum guides students to think intentionally about culture and identity so that they can better understand how their perspectives are shaped. Students will learn the importance of suspending immediate judgments when they are exposed to a new culture or environment, and will gain practice describing situations or experiences objectively. Some of the activities will introduce students to personal and social responsibilities and ask them to think critically about their impact on their host community.

Throughout their program, students will be asked to draw on their experiences in the host country to make observations regarding cultural differences and similarities. Each student will be challenged to reflect on their interactions with locals and to discuss with the group how these experiences may have changed their perception of what culture, identity, and social responsibility can look like in different contexts. Activities will help students process their time abroad and consider the ways in which they may be able to bring their new knowledge, skills, and attitudes back to their local communities when they return from their trip.

Students need support and guidance after they return from their program in order to process their time abroad and translate their new skills and perspectives into life back home. This is why we provide activities that promote student reflection, followed by intentional action, in their local community. Students will practice articulating the knowledge and cultural competence they have gained abroad to help them express their experience in college essays, job interviews, and beyond. We also include important resources for parents that help them understand their child’s experiences abroad and support them in adjusting to life back home. Once a participant registers for a program, they will be sent more information regarding this important aspect of our programs.
