HC Bite the Big Apple is our premiere benchmarking trip to New York and Boston. Participants enjoy the sights and sounds of New York, exploring tourist attractions and the everyday life of New York. They then travel to Boston where they engage in benchmarking activities with local schools. Included on the trip are orientation tours to MIT, Harvard and other universities as available. The experience of a different culture, the ability for participants to critically analyze their education and the opportunity to consider new endeavors all make Bite the Big Apple a great trip. This is primarily a trip for students outside of America.
This trip will change your life and perspective.
Each Hammer & Chisel trip is unique and focused on the acquisition of new experiences, new perspectives and new skills. This allows each participant to reconsider their worldview and global perspective which opens doors and widens horizons. Each participant discovers their uniqueness, enjoys two global cities filled with history, promise and challenge. The growth that they experience is phenomenal. Each trip is participant driven and chaperoned by committed and passionate staff.
We train our staff to make the most out of every opportunity to drive home this uniqueness and to transform all participants alike. In our company language, we call this “sculpting learners and leaders for dynamic change” and “leveraging teaching moments”.
