With the program design and itinerary in hand, our team's focus transitions to implementation. Bringing the in-country experience to fruition begins with cultivating a range of local connections—at universities, K-12 schools, government offices, NGOs, multinational corporations, innovate startups, and more.
Fostering a positive environment in which our program participants form meaningful, mutually beneficial and lasting relationships with local stakeholders forms the bedrock of our in-country effort. It is often these people-to-people experiences that plant the seed in students’ minds to continue exploring the globe and expanding their horizons, both geographically and intellectually.
The second key aspect of implementation concerns the nuts and bolts of smooth logistical delivery—buses, planes, trains, hotels, restaurants, guides, site visits, and so on. Solstice has over ten years' experience working in a variety of contexts to ensure seamless logistical implementation. We do not take this crucial aspect of program delivery lightly and utilize a key set of internal processes to meet the challenge.
