Do you want to travel but traditional tourism doesn't attract you? Would you prefer to experience cultural immersion and discover another country, its people and its customs? Would you like to be involved as a volunteer, working within a community, getting to know its inhabitants, and living with them - all the while discovering a new way of life and another reality? If, however, traveling alone may seem too daunting for your first experience abroad, the Discovery Program may be just what you're looking for!
Are you ready to dive into a culture that is totally different from your own for a period of 3 to 4 weeks?
