Tour operators can take a group of young people anywhere in the world for any educational purpose. They can build travel arrangements, accommodation and learning content into a coordinated programme that removes much of the organisational work from group leaders.
They can give young people an unparalleled window on the world. Every type of content is possible — cultural visits, historical and language studies, a series of concerts performed by the school choir, a visit to a partner school or youth project abroad, sports tournaments, activity holidays and ski courses, to name but a few.
All young people require the knowledge, skills and understanding to live in, and contribute to, a global society and this begins with an understanding of the world in which we live, including the languages, values and cultures of different societies.
The first-hand experience gained in the context of a study, cultural or sports tour is one way of enabling young people to acquire this mix of knowledge, skills and understanding.
All of these activities, in their different ways, help to develop self-esteem, self-confidence and independence. They also give young people the opportunity to experience other cultures, meet and develop new friendships and thus broaden their horizons and knowledge .
