Minds Abroad also offers customized programs for high school and college groups. These programs can begin anytime during the year and have the flexibility of combining language immersion, volunteering and educational travel along with specific needs of each group. Minds Abroad's philosophy is about 'learning by doing' so in addition to studying Mandarin, we also arrange for volunteering activities with local NGOs, extracurricular activities like Tai Chi, Calligraphy, Chinese painting or cookery classes etc. We try to strike an ideal blend of Mandarin classes and hands-on activities. These activities help students understand better about Chinese life and culture and also learn about the local community.
Through these programs, student travelers will not only see a new part of the world, they may also earn academic credits for their study abroad. We take care of everything from accommodations to meals to chaperoning students in excursions.
Teachers guiding their students can travel for free! We provide all kind of supporting letters and information that you would need to discuss our programs with your colleagues at school, your study abroad office and with interested students. Do ask us more and we would send you a sample of our customized itinerary for school/college groups so that you can have a better idea about our programs.
