This program starts in January for a once in a lifetime journey! Your trip group and two staff leaders will work together to make your 14-16 day trip an incredible experience by learning language, culture and history.
Trips include visiting historic and modern sites, home stays with local families, and community service activities planned by the hosting country’s YMCA. Financial aid is available to the extent possible and group fundraising opportunities will help make this opportunity a reality!
