Fare Structures: All international flights will depart from LAX or SFO. If you are from Northern California and on our Japanese program you will fly out of Sacramento to LAX to be a part of our Japan group. There will be no extra charge for the flight down to LAX. All flights will be arranged by our Youth Exchange travel agent. If you are from Northern California going to one of our European countries our Youth Exchange travel agent will make plans for you to depart from San Francisco to your country of choice and back. You will not be flying as a group. If you are not from California and wish to be a part of our group going to Japan, additional airfare will be charged.  Please make arrangements to be put up the night before we depart and to be able to get to LAX for your departing flight to Japan as we do not have that ability.  If you wish to be a part of our European program, and you are not from California, your departing airport, to your country of choice, will be obtained for you by our Youth Exchange travel agent. This will be from your most convenient international airport in the state in which you live and back.  

If you require help to pay for our program, scholarships are available. Please fill out our scholarship application.
