Exotic Expeditions: Renovate an Indonesian Temple

While all types of teen travel are on the upswing, the most pronounced trend is travel to exotic countries on trips with a community service component. Some trips are arranged by churches and school groups. School counselors are often a good resource for information. Below is a sampling of both nonprofit and profit-making companies delivering quality trips for teens.

Putney Student Travel organizes teen community service trips to Asia, Africa and North and South America. For example, students traveling to Nusa Penida in Indonesia have in past summers helped subsistence farmers in the fields, taught English and art to kids, and worked on renovating a temple. Students may also choose to become certified divers when not working. Three-week service programs range from $5,590 to $7,790, including airfare. Details: 802-387-5000, http://www.goputney.com.
