Outbound Opportunities for American Students

Designed for American students ages 14–18, NOD’s outbound opportunities give you a variety of programs to choose from to discover the world.

You’ll learn the culture and language of a foreign country by living with a host family and experiencing their daily life and activities. Through these traditional homestays, you’ll build new lifelong relationships and experience once-in-a-lifetime adventures.
