Two years ago, Go Overseas came up with eight values we wanted to get behind as an organization. In 2016 our growing partner team (which is tasked with supporting the thousands of program providers listed on the site) wanted to add a few specific commitments of our own.
Every partnership begins with us listening carefully to your goals.
The work we do daily to help you succeed and grow is informed by these four. Do you think we missed one? We'd love to hear what you expect from us, and the rest of the Go Overseas team.
1. Be Comprehensive
We’re on a mission to create the biggest and best resource for both providers and participants. We add providers and their programs to the site every day, from every corner of the globe.
Over the last six years we've found ways to do this better: new systems, better communication, partnerships with other organizations. The more complete our resource is, the more people we can inspire to go overseas.
2. Focus on Measurable Results
Every partnership begins with us listening carefully to your goals. From there, we’ll work backwards to make sure every aspect of your advertising campaign supports those goals. With our focus on measurable results, we provide ongoing analysis to make sure your campaign is on track to beat expectations.
Not a web analytics whiz? That’s OK! We love helping our clients learn how to measure and interpret their metrics.
3. Get Personal
Go Overseas may be a website, but we pride ourselves on being here for you personally. We care about our providers and their programs. What makes your program unique? How does an average day start there? What’s the impact on the participant and the local community? We're curious!
Fulfilling our mission means first investing in the larger field of experiential education and travel.
Our team is passionate because we’ve all been impacted by meaningful travel. Anna, Tucker, Joanna, and Isaiah sit seven feet apart, and come to work everyday ready to help providers like you. We can’t wait to get to know you.
4. Stay Invested in the Larger Mission
Fulfilling our mission means first investing in the larger field of experiential education and travel. Through fresh ideas, plenty of tenacity, and a heavy dose of optimism, we’re constantly seeking ways to collaborate with fellow organizations on new initiatives.
How do we bring transparency to the field? How can we make these experiences a reality for more people? Who can we partner with to offer funding? Bottom line: we want to send more people overseas and want to grow this space in a way that facilitates global citizenship for all.
