We’ve discussed the VaughanTown volunteer language and cultural program for adults previously. It’s a great way to travel and mingle in Spain. Now they’re offering a similar program for youth age 12-17. This is great!
Again, they’ve put together a 2-week program, split time between a homestay with a Spanish family followed by a group camp. The program fees are covered by the host family, so the participant only has to cover their round-trip transportation to Madrid and funds for incidentals.
This would make a good starter travel excursion and help encourage independence. It’s a lot shorter than a semester abroad. Children can build valuable life skills..and the brief trip won’t require a huge commitment, while keeping separation anxiety to a minimum hopefully!
