Community Webinars

As COVID-19 continues to interfere with travel, our partners are shifting to virtual and online offerings. Check out the webinars and virtual events within our community!

Go Overseas was founded to satisfy a deep desire to help bring life-changing experiences to as many people as possible. Now, with international travel coming to a standstill, our entire world is disconnecting at a time when we need each other more than ever. Go Overseas and providers alike have had to change what human connection & perspective-changing international experiences mean to our community. Many of our partners have begun to offer webinars and virtual events to continue facilitating impactful human connection in this ever-changing international education landscape. If you are hosting a webinar and would like us to share the details of your event, please contact events@gooverseas.com.
