HOW TO TRAVEL WITH CIEE
It’s February, and that means that your Spring Break is just around the corner! Some families in the U.S make plans to travel during their Spring Break. Some families that live in colder climates around the U.S may travel to a warmer place to escape the winter while others take trips to the mountains to take part in snow sports, like skiing or snowboarding, before all of the snow melts away. Some families stay in their hometown and spend time with their friends. Spring Break is also a wonderful time for you to explore ways to get involved in your community and complete your Community Service Project! What will you do during yourSpring Break?
Remember, traveling is a privilege, not a right. Please note the following important CIEE rules regarding travel:
- All travel must be approved by CIEE
- At least two weeks prior to your trip, contact your Local Coordinator to fill out a Travel Request Form to send to your Support Coordinator at CIEE
- Natural Parents visits must be approved by CIEE
- CIEE has a right to approve or deny travel requests
If you will be traveling with your host family, be sure to notify your Local Coordinator as soon as possible so that they can help you fill out and submit your Travel Request Form if necessary.
