Thailand 101 is a two-week program for high school juniors/seniors and college students. The group will spend one week volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park, working hands-on with the elephants and seeing first-hand how a successful NGO is run. The second week will be spent in the city of Chiang Mai, exploring the best cultural and environmental activities that Chiang Mai has to offer. It's a great opportunity for students who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and are eager to explore a new culture, but don’t want a language-immersion or home-stay program.
This program is open to graduating high school seniors through graduating college seniors, and to high school juniors and seniors. It's a great fit for students who want a chance to live and work among the elephants, but also want to see what this beautiful city and its surroundings have to offer. Prices are all-inclusive (less airfare) and financial aid is available.
