The Experiment in International Living provides 3-, 4-, and 5-week summer programs for high school students who want to connect deeply and engage meaningfully with the richness and complexities of another country. See all programs.
Programs equip students not only with essential cultural and, in many cases, language skills, but also with a deeper awareness of and sensitivity to global issues shaping the diverse communities and regions we visit. Students explore the host country through hands-on experiences in local communities and through the lens of a specific theme. Review program themes
Each Experiment group is accompanied by two trained adult leaders. Maximizing the safety and health of all participants is each group leader’s top priority.
Connect with students, colleagues, alumni, and friends through our many social networking channels. Learn about the latest program updates, read interviews with current students and alumni, watch videos and view photos of our programs, and stay up to date with us.
The Experiment has been providing immersive experiential learning programs abroad since 1932. Each year, students come away from an Experiment program with invaluable new skills, connections, awareness, and knowledge that helps them to thrive—and lead—in diverse, intercultural environments.
