Find Your Program
With over 160 programs to choose from, there is a wide range of many types of adventures. Are you looking for a trip that offers more adrenaline activities or an urban-cultural focus? Do you want to engage in community service projects, practice a language, or both? Our program options differ in experience so choosing the program that best meets your wishes is the key to success. Consider your personal interests and goals when narrowing down your choices. If you need guidance on program options that may be best for you, please schedule a call with us. We would love to help you find the perfect fit!
It is recommended to view the Frequently Asked Questions page when preparing to choose your trip! Additionally, each program has trip specific FAQs on each webpage.
Eligibility and Personal Expectations
While Travel For Teens programs are appropriate for most teens, they are not necessarily appropriate for all. Successful travelers are in good health and are dedicated to immersing themselves fully into the experience. Participants are enthusiastic about all their trip has to offer and are positive, welcoming, and encouraging of their fellow travelers.
Travel For Teens is not a therapeutic program, so our experience may not be best suited for those experiencing behavioral, mental health, substance abuse, or self-harm issues (Please contact us prior to registering if you have any concerns if traveling with TFT is the best option right now).
Travel For Teens does offer the option to hire a “coach” or additional staff member to assist travelers who may need a little more help. Please contact us directly for details.
Understanding Our Expectations
Travel For Teens has five key rules designed for the safety of the group.
- No drinking alcohol or using illegal drugs
- No sexual activity
- No leaving the group without permission
- No bringing strangers into the group
- No Negative Energy, which includes our zero-tolerance stance towards bullying or compromising the group experience
Following these five rules is vital to participants’ safety. In order to ensure the rules are respected and the group safety is maintained, TFT will send home participants who violate any one of the rules. Participants who are removed from a program for violating code of conduct will not be refunded and are financially responsible for any additional costs associated with this.
All participants are required to sign our Code of Conduct confirming they understand the rules and expectations of Travel For Teens.
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.
