Youth International in Asia (Nepal, India, and Thailand)

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Join a 3-month travel adventure in Nepal, India and Thailand and explore with a small group of like-minded peers!

Travel is rugged, with backpacks and using local transportation. Accommodation is with local families or in hostels. A core component of the program is the volunteer service projects set up in each country, during which participants work together on a project to benefit a local community. Often this involves the construction or renovation of a school or community building. In addition, there are a wide variety of other cultural activities and outdoor adventure components.

Dates for the next Asia program are: February 15 to May 16, 2018. Applications are also being accepted for the fall 2018 program: September 12 to December 11, 2018. Full daily program itineraries can be viewed on the Youth International website. College credit options are available through a partnership with Western State Colorado University. 529 College Savings Plan funds are welcome.
