Logistical Considerations
  • A significant portion of the class assigments are due before the departure date.

  • A minimum number of students required fro program to be offered.  If you're interested, tell your friends so the roster can be set by September 9.

  • Independent travel (before and/or after the programs start and end date) is permitted, but each participant is required to confirm travel with program leaders since there would be medical insurance requirements.
