The safety of all students will be a priority throughout the program. We will meet three time prior to the trip and have several check points during the excursion to insure participants are comfortable with their travel and safe. We will also have staff members traveling with each group as resources to help answer questions and concerns during the trip as well as points of contact in the US for family members. However, exploration and enjoying the opportunity to travel abroad is an experience that we encourage everyone to experience. Not only does it build on the bonds developed during the course, but it expands the connection we have with the world around us.
