If you have been thinking about joining our Asia gap year program in India, Nepal & Thailand, or our South America gap year program in Bolivia, Peru, & Ecuador, you now have another option to think about. Youth International is excited to announce the addition of a new gap year program in Kenya, Egypt & Jordan, coming in the fall of 2020! There is no other program like this, combining immersion in cultures of East Africa, North Africa, and the Middle East, all in the course of a three-month experiential learning adventure.
As with all of Youth International’s three month semester programs, there is a wide variety of experiences built into your time with the group. For about a third of the time, you will be living with families in different communities, and getting to know the local way of life by living it yourself. You will experience Bedouin life, life in an African village, and city life as well. You will also have the opportunity to give back to the communities that are hosting you through volunteer community service work. You will take part on projects that we have developed in conjunction with community leaders, which are both sustainable and driven by the community you are helping. You will explore natural highlights, like the African savanna, and cultural highlights, like the great pyramids of Giza.
Contact us today about joining us next fall on this one of kind gap year travel opportunity!
