Our Experiential Learning MISSION
At Knowledge on the Run, our mission is to enrich the lives of students through travel and experiential education. Our youth development experience goes far beyond the classroom to expose our students to cultures that differ from our own. Through unique experiences abroad, we place students in a position to grow as individuals. Traveling challenges our students and encourages the development of leadership, communicative, and collaborative skills. Through an intense focus on daily writing, our abroad experiences provide invaluable self-reflection, which is key to personal growth. It is our passion to explore the world and learn as much as possible along the way. Travel serves us in many ways, but most of all it is a fun, enjoyable experience that we hope to share with as many students as possible.
Who We Are
Knowledge on the Run, founded by two best friends Morgan Bernard and Keaton Day, values travel and experiential learning above all else. At Knowledge on the Run, we believe that exposure to other cultures through travel fosters personal growth and leadership skills in a student’s most malleable years. We aim to provide students with unique travel opportunities to locations that they would not otherwise have experienced on their own.
Knowledge on the Run partners with numerous schools in the Houston area and around Texas. Our school partnerships are designed to complement the academic process and experiential education work done in the classroom, with our global education experiential framework. We offer schools a variety of set itineraries with a multitude of travel destinations. Additionally, we work tirelessly with schools to build programs from scratch to turn their travel dreams into a reality.
The Road to Berlin
The Road to Berlin is our flagship program that began our company. In this 7 city, 5 country adventure, students will shadow the US infantry during WWII, from the beaches of Normandy to the streets of Berlin. Along the way, they will learn the military history of each site, familiarize themselves with powerful personal narratives, and enjoy everything each city has to offer, including art, food, and architecture.
