High School Study Abroad and Teen Travel

Teen Summer Adventure, Volunteer, Language and Gap Year Programs

Teen travel and study abroad

Often, the best place for students to start planning for ways to study abroad and develop cultural awareness is through their high school. Foreign language teachers often provide information about summer and short-term international programs. Directories and social media sites also provide more information that inspires teens to research and book their ideal activities and destinations while showing them off to their parents.

Some of the many choices now available to teens include high school programs offering language, study, cultural, or volunteering experiences. There are also tons of exciting teen summer camps and teen travel programs providing everything from adventures worldwide to language immersion learning.

Options for pre-college or students who want to take a summer, semester, or a "gap year" before college for meaningful travel, volunteer service, or study abroad include a variety of programs run by both established and dynamic new organizations. The top organizations understand the evolving interests and needs of the current generation of teens. Many of the most prestigious colleges now prefer high school students with study abroad experience. Time spent overseas provides proven preparation for success in later academic work at their home high school and future study abroad high school programs.

You can find all the best options for teen and high school programs abroad of all types right here.
