Learning AFAR provides experiential travel scholarships to low-income youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to explore our world.
Students spend six months studying Chinese cultures, global issues, services and leaderships before embarking on an international expedition. Since 2010, Learning AFAR and No Barriers Youth have supported 271 students. They return with confidence and a sense of personal ownership that shifts their perceptions and helps empower their communities.
Imagine the world where a million youth have opportunities to open their eyes to our world and their place within it. We believe the best way to do this is to build a network of partners who are passionate about that goal.
Starting from August of 2013, Chinatour.com has partnered with Learning AFAR and No Barriers Youth to promote cultural exchange to low-income, high-achieving students from schools across the US. These students will interact with local Chinese youth through a variety of cultural activities, including learning Tai Chi and Calligraphy from local instructors, strolling through the Forbidden City, and learning responsible tourism and travel skills, all while becoming immersed in the rich history and culture of China.
