Travel Resources

When most people think of international travel, their heads fill with images of short, week long getaways to far-away cities and sun-kissed beaches, but for the purpose of this guide, this section will focus on resources for meaningful travel, travel that also serves as an opportunity to pursue something of deep interest and investment. While meaningful travel looks different for each person, it always requires cultural immersion, something short vacations generally fail to foster. This meaningful travel can be divided into four categories: opportunities for teaching English abroad, international study abroad Opportunities for High School students, service opportunities, and internship and short-term work opportunities. While these are in no way the only types of meaningful travel, they represent a good portion of available international travel opportunities.
