Safety is our number one priority, and with 22 years in the business we have perfected our processes and systems to keep our travelers safe while having the summer of a lifetime. We pride ourselves on having the best leaders and programs in the teen travel industry and it all starts with our well thought out safety and risk management plan.

Our Safety and Risk Management Plan

In Depth Program Vetting and Research

We consistently evaluate and re-evaluate the safety of each of our destinations and vendors. We are familiar with the infrastructure of each destination and how to swiftly handle emergency situations. All of our accommodations and activities have been personally vetted by TFT staff as part of the intensive, on-the-ground research that is behind every program.

Safety Policies and Code of Conduct

We have specific policies in place to ensure the safety of our participants including no drinking or drugs, no leaving the group without permission, and no negative energy, which includes our zero-tolerance stance towards bullying. All travelers sign a code of conduct agreeing to these policies. Conduct that endangers anyone or compromises the group experience is not permitted and some policies are zero tolerance and will result in dismissal.

Outstanding Leadership

We have thousands of applicants every year which means we can be picky when choosing our summer staff and only hire the best of the best! All staff are CPR and First Aid certified and have in depth backgrounds working with youth and experience in the destinations we visit. We only hire responsible, multi-talented individuals who are safety-minded and as passionate about teen travel as we are.

24/7 Summer Communication

Your program director will be in touch every 24-48 hours throughout the program with detailed email updates and hundreds of photos so you can follow along and rest assured your teen is in safe hands. Our office team is available for you to contact 24/7 during the summer. All families have access to a special emergency line in the event they need immediate assistance.

On the Ground Support

We send our company leadership around the world while programs are running so we can offer 24/7 support in every timezone. Our leadership team performs site visits to our programs to provide ongoing support and ensure everything runs smoothly. We schedule in person one on one check-ins with staff to provide further mentorship. This investment in our staff members sets us apart in the teen travel industry.

Traveler Check-ins

Our staff perform one on one check-ins with each traveler at the start of, and midway through, every program. This allows an open environment for our travelers to share any concerns or thoughts on the trip so that we can prevent problems before they happen. This is extremely effective for mitigating group dynamic issues and allowing every participant a chance to be heard.

Inclusivity Statement

Travel For Teens is committed to creating a culture of inclusivity. We celebrate the differences that our participants, employees, and families bring to create a diverse community. We are proud to foster an environment that encourages respect, tolerance, and acceptance. Travel For Teens welcomes the unique contributions our travelers bring in terms of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and religion.

We have a zero tolerance policy for bullying and reserve the right to remove any participant not abiding by our code of conduct from the program.
