Yorkers Club Educational Goals
The Yorkers Club mission is to break down the barriers that exist between cultures today and to help make a student not just an American, but also a Global Citizen. We do this by education through travel and cultural exchanges. We believe that one of the best ways that a student can learn is by firsthand experience.  Students appreciate the benefits of world travel which fosters independence and responsibility.
Students will demonstrate awareness for the world, themselves and other cultures by beginning to understand and experience different beliefs, ways of living and other value systems.
Crossing culture is not easy and for students to be able to see and experience another culture is a great learning tool. Traveling with Yorkers Club will help them to respect and understand the differences in other people’s ways of living.
Students will connect classroom to world by using NYS learning standards.
