QFI and GEEO Educator Tours

The opportunity to learn about other cultures first-hand through an in-country experience is an unparalleled educational experience for teachers. QFI partners with the Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) to offer cultural immersion trips to the Arab world for U.S. primary and secondary school teachers.

Each winter and spring, educators travel to Qatar and Oman for a 12-day experience where they explore historical and cultural sights led by in-country guides. Sessions during the evenings facilitate curriculum connections and discussion.


Upcoming QFI and GEEO Educators Tours:

Winter: December 21 – January 3, 2020

Spring: March 8, 2020 – March 21, 2020
