    New York Times Student Journeys offers educational travel programs for high school students. Our programs visit destinations The Times has covered, where students can benefit from our special understanding and insider’s view as they explore themes and topics associated with Times coverage of local issues.

    Operating each of our Journeys is Putney Student Travel. Putney is as passionate about educational travel as The New York Times is about education. This collaboration combines the Times’s expertise in adding perspective to places and events with Putney’s long history of designing educational travel programs to present a range of experiences like no other.

    Students can expect a collaborative group experience focused on each program’s theme. Group leaders and a New York Times expert will guide students as they choose a culminating project related to the theme of the program, prepare it and present it to their peers at the end of the program.

    Showcase your journalistic skills while pursuing a project that ignites your interest in local issues. Contribute to a blog featuring student projects or write an economics piece illustrated with scenes from Piccadilly Circus. Record a podcast on how immigrants from India, a former British colony, made chicken tikka masala into an iconic British dish. Note, cost does not include airfare.
