Experiential Education Programs For Groups and Individuals
Since 1967, the Workshops Foundation has provided experience-based educational travel programs to highly motivated, academically prepared, and inquisitive groups and individuals from across the United States and the international community. Our programs offer a highly comprehensive understanding of leadership, civic education, domestic and global politics, history and culture.

Programs available include simulations of the U.S. Congress, The U.S Presidency, U.S. Supreme Court (Simulations of the three branches of government – Executive, Legislative, Judicial), Cultural and Human Geography, internships for career exploration, academically themed seminars, professional development, and person-to-person exchange.

History, Legacy, Access
Effectively understanding any destination, political, private, social, and media experience requires relationships, creativity, and understanding. While iconic monuments, memorials and museums are part of every destination, the culture, politics, business, cuisine, language, art and music should also be part of any cultural/educational experience. Besides being the epicenter of the U.S. government, Washington, D.C. is a vital and culturally rich city replete with international media, educational institutions, embassies, non-governmental organizations and engaging speakers. Throughout our history almost 50 year history, we’ve worked relentlessly to build connections to many of these individuals and organizations and continue building new relationships today. As a result we hold the key to the important curricular components – beyond the standard tour – that give our travelers a personal look behind the scenes of national and global decision making, politics and national heritage.
