Pre-departure Orientations for Secondary Schools

September 26, 2019

Secondary school pre-departure orientation (PDO) programs have many things in common with university level PDOs. However, additional information needs to be covered as the participants are often minors under the legal age of 18. This mandates that for all intents and purposes they are under the care of the faculty or administrator leading the education abroad experience. Join us for a text-based Q&A session with experts from the field of secondary school education abroad programs.
