What are the other levels of membership?


Did you know that the average cost of an online training course is $137, [1] which is roughly the same cost as one new college textbook? Our commitment is to prepare good global guests without breaking your budget. So, the most each student pays for their complete training course is the equivalent cost of one meal. Now that's value, and isn't your students' health and safety worth that?

To honor WorldKind’s pledge to making education abroad more accessible and inclusive, we also offer 20% off  the "White Glove" plan for all community colleges and Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) every year.

As part of our first-year celebration, we're giving 20% off to the first 20 partner schools that join us before June 30, 2024
