Opportunities to Explore the World

This programme provides numerous opportunities for young people between 15 and 25 to explore the world and discover themselves while learning about and understanding new cultures, new environments and maybe even a new language. They will also be an ambassador, teaching people they meet about their country, culture, and ideas. They can help bring the world closer – and make friends in the process.

Opportunities include a short camp or tour with other young people from around the world, a short term exchange staying in the home of an exchange partner and subsequently hosting them, and a long term exchange, living and studying in another country for an academic year with one or more host families, enabling participants to broaden their minds and their horizons, with or without vocational experience or academic study. 

This is an ideal programme for young people wanting to do something worthwhile for others and beneficial for their own careers before or during their studies or into their professional lives, while developing their personal skills and increasing their understanding of the world.
