The STS Company
Empowering young people to grow through education and cultural exchange.
STS is a global company within travel and education that makes it possible for 8-19 year-olds to go out and discover the world, learn new languages, experience different cultures, grow in independence and self-confidence, and develop into true citizens of the world. We were the first company in the world to offer these opportunities and it is our strong belief that our products are more relevant now than ever.
Most companies sell products or services, but we offer our clients life-changing experiences and the chance to grow and develop in important ways, and as STS employees it is our duty and privilege to accompany them as they discover the world for themselves. This is a responsibility that we have the outmost respect for, knowing that the experiences we offer will accompany our students forever.
Do you know what it’s like to surf in -15-degree weather in rural Norway or how to keep 95 students hydrated on a sweltering New York summer day? We do. We’re intimately involved in all aspects of our programmes and activities, so that we can be 100% sure that our students get the best experience every time. With our core values – expertise, passion and respect – as our guiding light, we work tirelessly to give our students everything they need for a successful exchange and the adventure of a lifetime.
Start your journey with us
Today, STS is one of the world's leading organisations for language training and international youth exchange. We highly value a corporate culture and working environment where all of our colleagues feel at home and like equally important parts of the same team.
Independence, self-confidence, a desire to constantly better oneself: these are some of the qualities we strive to foster in our students, and we find it equally important that our co-workers feel encouraged to flourish in the same way.Whether it’s developing a whole new high school product or changing the beans in the coffee machine from Arabica to Robusta, employees are constantly encouraged to take initiative and promote change, knowing that this is what moves us forward as a company and helps us advance on our own individual journeys.
Keeping it in the family
Since its beginnings, 60 years ago, STS has remained a family-owned company, a fact which permeates every aspect of our operations and mentality. Like with any family, there are traditions, inside jokes, friendly rivalries and lots of laughs. We work hard and play hard, push each other to be our best, share each other’s challenges and successes, and know that we can always count on one another for support and encouragement.
A good working environment is everything to us. At HQ, when you need a break we encourage you to work on becoming the next ping pong world champion in the Marketing department or develop your inner horticulturist over in Operations (all departments are also strongly encouraged to hone their baking skills and share the fruits of their labour).
Welcome to the family.
