*Relay GSE is an AmeriCorps partner. We strongly encourage you to join the AmeriCorps program if you're eligible, as it aligns with Relay’s commitment to service and the work you do daily as a teacher. Participating students earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon completion of a full-service term that may be applied to reduce the out-of-pocket cost of tuition. Failure to participate in the AmeriCorps program if you’re eligible means that you are fully aware that Relay will charge you the deferred tuition amount equivalent to the AmeriCorps Segal Education Award and you will be responsible for paying that amount in full.

About Washington, DC
Washington, DC, offers everything that you remember from your middle school field trip, and a lot more.

The Air and Space Museum and the Natural History Museum are classic favorites, while the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Museum of African American History and Culture provide powerful windows into human history.
For those looking to get away from the main tourist spots, head west to catch a show at the majestic Kennedy Center on the Potomac, and continue on to Georgetown to walk the historic, cobblestone streets and do a little shopping. Pop into a bar during a State of the Union address to experience a town that takes politics as seriously as it does sports.
