The 2009 Summer Workation Pilot Program

Monday, February 16th, 2009

 Hey Teachers!

Are you looking for something to do this summer?

Try taking a Summer Workation. A workation will give you:

  • New growth opportunities
  • Increased pay
  • A Breakup of your annual routine
  • A chance to try something you have always wanted to do
  • We plan to pilot the Summer Workation program for a select group of teachers this summer! If you are interested in working with us to set your summer plans please go here – Teacher Signup.

    We are looking for teachers with a diverse set of interests who are willing to give us feedback before and after their workations!

    The results are in and Summer Workation has become the official winner of the Ideablob Business Contest!! This means we win funding to launch Summer Workation!!!

    We are both excited and humbled by this recent news. We are excited because this seed money will allow us to turn SW into a reality! But at the same time we are humbled because we know it would not have been possible without the support of our great family and friends.

    Thank you all for your incredible ongoing support!! Make sure to sign up for our newsletter (on the right) to hear the latest SW news. If you want to get involved with Summer Workation e-mail us:

    Workation Idea Contest!

    Sunday, February 8th, 2009

    Summer Workation hopes to revolutionize the opportunities available to teachers over the summer!

    In order to do this, we have a two-pronged strategy:
    1) Catalogue existing summer opportunities
    2) Create new summer opportunities

    As we work with our first set of Summer Workation Teachers, we want to get your input! Take a second to give us your best workation ideas! Think of something new or let us know some great things teachers already do over the summer. The best workation idea (chosen by our illustrious board of advisers) will win a prize.
