"It has made me more confident in my ability to deal with new situations myself and not have to ask somebody else for help. My experience also improved my ability to travel and find my way around, how to make new friends and discover new things." - Andrew, 2015

This exciting, 3 month programme is a host-family and school-based cultural opportunity.

  • Make new friends
  • Learn a language
  • Explore a different culture

Youth Camp in Brussels: At the end of their stay, the students will meet with up to 240 students at the 4 day ECTP (European Citizenship Trimester Programme) camp which will give them the opportunity to share their experiences, attend workshops discussing active EU citizenship and visit the European Institutions in Brussels.

Important: This is a study abroad experience through a European language other than English. Your destination will depend on the availability of places in countries that use your language of choice.
