STUDY ABROAD IN GREECE
At the junction of east and west – in the cradle of logic, theatre, the Hippocratic Oath and history –
Greece is where time heightens minds and shaped civilizations.
Debate life and academics in a hilltop monastery. Find middle ground, in the birthplace of the Golden Mean. Walk in the footsteps of mythical and real-life heroes – of the men who battled the gods and redefined human society.
As did our ancestors, meet with us in the place that bridges cultures and differences, where great thinkers convene to develop new ideas of democracy, philosophy, and the sciences.
Let’s chase sacred mysteries and traverse miniscule yet extraordinary pinpoints on the map, to reach both deep inside and far beyond ourselves.
LEARN THROUGH TRAVEL
Evolution through experiential travel is not a new concept.
As early as 2,500 years ago, the Ancient Greeks journeyed overseas to explore the cultural institutions and legal systems of other nations. Upon return to Greece, they reported their findings to a designated “Supreme Council,” which evaluated this new knowledge and decided which inclusions should be integrated into Greek culture.
Get Lost is designed as an academic program that encourages similar evolution. More than a study abroad experience, more than an adventure, more than world travel – this is also a program that provides the essentials for students to embark on a life and career that bridge diversity and embrace a global perspective.
Opportunity reveals itself in a thousand forms.
Gather your students to embark on a faculty-led sailing expedition and to summit mountain discovery. Explore industry as you can only do in Greece. Take your class anywhere but the classroom.
Yield to the magnetic pull of possibility. To the promise that anything can happen, when you consent to stepping outside your comfort zone and challenging your perceptions.
Expand your horizons. Be a participant in your own evolution. Say yes to the places, the moments, and the occasions that forge new paths and build resolve.
WHY SAIL ABROAD?
Aviation StandardsOur safety standards are inspired by aviation’s strictest standards and were developed in collaboration with the Hellenic Rescue Team and aviation specialists.
Fundamental PreparednessOur culture of safety resides in foresight, extrapolates every possible eventuality, creates an action plan, and then cultivates and refines our team’s instincts.
Team TrainingWe create and regularly run drills to handle every feasible scenario. Safety comes down to seconds, so we make sure our reactions are second-nature. No delays.
Drilled to PerfectionA plan is only as good as its practice. We run frequent and rigorous drills, to train our team in every aspect of safety and emergency response.
Rehearsed Safety ProceduresWe have thorough safety procedures, which we review with you at every stage and reinforce through our own behavior. Our routines will become yours – and will help cultivate a stronger personal culture of safety within your group.
Risk ManagementOur safety procedures are fundamentally based in critical perceptions, on-the-spot decision making, and how to handle both individual situations and life. We inspire travelers to enjoy and to push boundaries, and to stay safe while adventuring.
First-Aid CertificationsEvery, single member of our staff is certified in First Aid, both on land and by sea. We require yearly refreshment courses. We also carry fully equipped First Aid kits everywhere we go and meticulously plan our first aid reactions.
Our Undivided AttentionYour captains, hosts, and trip directors – every member of our team is wholly focused on your group. While you’d be one of many on most trips, at Get Lost we have zero distractions. Your group is our only priority.
Shape ConfidenceWrapped in the comfort of a safety net, your students answer the call of challenge – of adventure. As they seek outside their comfort zones, they build confidence from within.
Global CitizenshipIf you want to be understood, you must first chase understanding. As students travel to meet their fellow global citizens, they will grow to better know the world.
Team MindsetOpen new opportunities and expand mindsets. Invite your students to build compassion and calibrate a team ethos that yields reward from cooperation.
Strong AlliancesWorking side-by-side in professional workshops, students will weave knowledge, shared experience, and networks born from collaboration, into the tapestry of their professional lives.
Authentic FriendshipsSitting together, feet touching the sea. Sail, hike, raft, swim, play and explore together. These are the moments, adventures, and memories that forge lifelong friendships.
Bridge DifferencesEvery kind smile, every shared meal, every conversation cobbled together from new vocabulary and signed language – these are the moments that bridge diversity and erode perceived difference.
Learn AdaptabilityAs students grasp at unpredictability, they learn the thrill of spontaneity – of the freeness born from a hands-on practice in flexibility and versatility. The ability to readjust, as necessary.
Answer the Call of AdventureThe world will always listen. When students go out of their comfort zone, they learn to approach life with daring, boldness, and courage. They acquire grit.
Life SkillsNomadic travel teaches focus and the ability to ignore distraction, whether it’s the hypnotic siren call of the sea, or the buzz of a busy office, or a traveling professional’s busy lifestyle.
Raise Self-EsteemAnchoring up, raising sails, mastering the wind and the sea, conquering wild summits – transformation and challenge are the discomforts that precede becoming.
