Get Up and Go!

Written by  September 14, 2015

In honour of Verge Magazine's annual Go Global Expos in Toronto, Montréal and Boston, this month's #travelwithpurpose Twitter chat is all about making your travel dreams a reality.

Join Verge, along with Hostels International Boston, Go Global Expo and International TEFL Academy, for our next #travelwithpurpose Twitter chat on Wednesday, September 16 at 3:30 EST.

Here's what we'll be discussing:

Q1. Why do you want to "get up and go?"

Q2. What would you like to know about finding work overseas? 

Q3. What would you like to know about volunteering overseas? 

Q4. What would you like to know about studying overseas? 

Q5. What are the best (online or offline) resources you’ve found for preparing to #travelwithpurpose?

Q6. Who or what has inspired you to #travelwithpurpose?

We hope you can join us—either online or at one of the Go Global Expos.
