NEW Vietnam Winterim Trip: Application Deadline Extended
This trip is a special collaboration project with the International Boarding Program, for the purpose of building bridges with our growing family network in Vietnam. We will be hosted by WA families in Hanoi, who will take us on a journey to experience firsthand the stories that influence modern society in Vietnam — stories of history, economics, and value systems. Students will be expected to play a highly proactive role in the relational aspects and documentation of this trip. Experience with videography, editing, and social media preferred. The application deadline was extended to Friday, September 30. (Students joining this trip may be eligible for internship credit depending on their roles/responsibilities.)
