Youth International COVID-19 Response and Refund Policy
The situation with COVID in the United States and around the world is dynamic. As it continues to develop and change, we at Youth International continue to stay flexible and adapt to the latest realities at home, and in each of the countries where we travel.
As always, every decision as to where we will and will not travel is made with the health and safety of our participants being our number one priority. We will never send a Youth International team anywhere, or into any situation, that is not considered safe for them or for our local partners and friends. We continue to consult the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the US State Department, the US Embassies in the countries where we travel, and our local contacts, and we will continue to follow their guidance and policies.
Based upon all of this, the next program that Youth International will send out will be the Fall 2021 program in Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands, from November 27 to December 23, 2021. To view the detailed itinerary for that program on our website click here.
Currently, we still have space available on this team. If you are interested in joining Youth International for the upcoming program in Ecuador, please fill out the Online Application Form.
Because of the continually changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we continue to offer very flexible refund policies on program fee deposits. Please consult Youth International directly for the current policies for the specific program in which you are interested. Also, if a program should ever have to be cancelled before the start date, for any reason, full refunds would be given. And we never charge application fees.
From November 2021 forward, Youth International will continue to run single-country programs of approximately one month in length twice every year from late November to late December, and from late April to late May.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our response to COVID-19, or anything else, please contact us directly at any time by email at: email@example.com or by phone at: 720-270-3323.
