Summer Journeys: Opportunities for Teens to Explore, Learn, and Serve

April 18, 2012

While summer employment for teens seems harder to find than ever, summer opportunities for high school students that combine fun, learning, service, travel, challenge, and adventure remain plentiful. What Kids Can Do has compiled a directory of international programs that immerse teens in the life and culture of a faraway country and in service projects that meet local needs.

They've also added a listing of programs on college campuses that provide academic enrichment and a taste of college life. We know application deadlines are fast approaching (or, in some cases, have passed)--but it's not too early to start planning for next summer.
