|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 and guidance counselors can provide
information about summer, short- and long-term international
programs. Some of the choices include
high school programs providing language,
study, culture, or volunteering experiences. There are also scores of
exciting teen summer camps and teen travel programs
offering everything from adventures worldwide
to language immersion learning.
Options for gap
year or pre-college students who want to take a
summer, semester, or a year before college for meaningful travel, volunteer, or study abroad include a variety of programs run by both established and dynamic new organizations who understand the interests and needs of the current generation. Many of the most prestigious colleges and college
study abroad programs now prefer high
school graduates with experience abroad as proven preparation for
success in later education at their home school and overseas.
