Travel Abroad


If your teen has the travel bug, taking a year off to travel to a foreign country can open her eyes to new cultures and experiences. Funding is likely an obvious issue. If your teen doesn't have the bank account to match her ambition, there are options that may support her adventure. She can look into international community service, or employment opportunities such as on a cruise ship or as an au pair.

For more information on community service, visit the American Field Force's website.
