"I'm sure when I ponder my life experiences, during the twilight of my years, I will regard my six weeks in Thailand as six of the most sensational weeks of my life... I traveled to Thailand hoping for an enriching experience. What I found exceeded my wildest expectations."
Chris Cox, International Health Program, Thailand

Group Discounts (2 or More People) for Service-Learning Programs:
Bring family and friends... and save! If a service-learning participant refers a friend or family member to another service-learning program, he or she will receive a discount of 10% of the second participant's fees. Discount applies for each additional referral, so the more friends you bring, the cheaper your service-learning program becomes! (Participants referred must start projects on the same date for the discount to apply, but may work on different projects.) Please contact us for large group discounts (8 or more people). Returning volunteers also receive a discount of 10% on the fees of their second program. Please note that group discounts do not apply for GSC-SUNY College Programs.
