Program Formats

We support multiple program formats to accommodate your organization from anywhere in the world.

Choosing Your Format

We offer three program formats with different features and logistics. We encourage partners to consider the number of program attendees, desired duration of the program, and budget when choosing a program format.

All programs include an orientation and closing ceremony.
