The Experiment Difference
A summer with The Experiment is not a trip or a tour. It's a journey to expand your understanding of the world and potentially change your life forever. Experimenters don't observe another place from the windows of a bus; Experimenters directly engage with their host communities through language study, community service, travel, ecology, the arts, cooking, photography, theater, or outdoor adventure. Experimenters become members of host families — sharing new languages, traditions, and food. Experimenters develop deep, lasting friendships with people they might otherwise never have met.

Each Experiment group typically comprises 10 to 15 high school students who come from diverse communities nationwide and from around the world. Experimenters share an intellectual curiosity for the world and are looking to make a difference by broadening their cultural horizons.

The Experiment in International Living's mission is to create meaningful, dynamic experiences for students eager to challenge themselves and engage their sense of global citizenry.

Activities: Africa, Argentina, Asia, Australia, Belize, Botswana, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Leadership/Community Service, Middle East, South America, United States.
