Junior Specials for Ages 12 to 15
Experience what life is like in other countries, learn about other cultures, and get an introduction to volunteering through our Junior Specials. Designed for students between the ages of 12 and 15, Junior Specials are a great way to explore the world, build friendships with other young people, and have experiences that no classroom can offer.
Volunteering abroad is popular with Secondary School Students and growing numbers of younger students are interested in the same experience. Building on our experience with High School Specials, our Junior Specials are safe and structured programmes that focus on what young people learn through experiences, not textbooks.
Cultural exchange is a big part of the programme. See the sights, learn about the traditions, music, and dance, try delicious food, and meet local people. Our staff are there every step of the way, guiding the experience and making sure everyone is comfortable and safe.
