GTTP Russia is housed at Junior Achievement Russia (JAR) and has grown rapidly since it became part of JAR in 2004. The Program’s schools have expanded beyond our original 32 classrooms in St. Petersburg and Moscow to cities across Russia from the Baltic to Vladivostok on the Sea of Japan. In April 2014 there were 159,654 students in 2,350 schools studying the new curriculum developed by the GTTP.
GTTP Russia provides extensive teacher training and support throughout our regional network, offering a high-quality program that has now been tried and tested across Russia.
As part of the GTTP, we offer students access to international activities and materials. These include a strong e-learning component based on the Russian-language version of GTTP’s PASSPORT TO THE WORLD: An Introduction to Travel & Tourism. We provide on-line materials that are approachable and attractive for students and teachers.
We participate in GTTP annual competitions and other activities designed to provide participants a better understanding of the Travel & Tourism industry, practical experience of research, project development and team work, opportunities to become more familiar with their own and other countries, and to interact with teachers and students from different GTTP countries.
To support our growth we rely on a dedicated and talented staff, a fully involved board, and the active support of loyal volunteers.
