Our immersive programs are 3 to 4 week long and offer an ideal balance between interactive coursework, travel adventures and engagement with local students and families. Explore the world and come home with new skills, newfound passion - and maybe even college credits!*


1. Language & Culture

Soak up a new culture and boost your language skills in Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, or Arabic. Apply the day's lesson in the real world, on excursions and at home with your host family! On average, our participants learn in 4 weeks as much as they do in a whole year of high school!** Our Language & Culture participants can also earn 4 college credits through Tulane University, our official school of record.*

2. Service & Leadership

Join a local non-profit and dive into a service learning adventure. Our programs focus on global issues such as youth empowerment, social justice, and environmental awareness. Develop your problem-solving skills while learning about community empowerment to make the world a better place. Come home with a certificate for 50 hours of service learning.

3. Global Discovery

Pursue or develop your passion for business, science, or the arts with one of our topic programs. Develop a whole set of new skills through hands-on projects, workshops, and interactions with the local community. Come home with a final project portfolio and a new career track!
