Going Travelling – Teens and what you need to know.
Working for a charitable organization can be a great way to spend a year after high school before going to college. Charitable work can also help your children gain valuable skills and experience that will help them achieve their future goals. During a gap year, there are numerous charities where young people can volunteer their time. Jennifer Douglas has many achievements, one of which is founding the Gede Foundation, which works hard to fight HIV and AIDS in Nigeria, and could be one such charitable organization to look into. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning your child’s trip.
Vaccinations, medical exam, and passport
It can take some time to get all the required vaccinations, visas, and documentation. Your child should have a physical exam so that any health issues can be treated beforehand. Your doctor or local health agency can advise as to what vaccinations are needed. Some vaccinations are done in a series, so it is essential to start planning early. Passports and visas are another aspect of travel that can take some time to process. The charitable organization that your child is volunteering with will likely help guide you and your child through some of this process.
