Our Boston, Chicago, New York City, and all three San Francisco hostels will offer additional HI USA education programs for groups to add on to their stays in lieu of a Hostel Orientation. This is a great way to enhance the learning opportunity that goes along with the GHGB. Groups can select from either Hostelling 101 or Study Abroad 101 in lieu of a hostel orientation.
In order to participate, groups must stay a minimum of three days and have one hour available for their educational program. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please indicate your program and desired date/time on your GHGB application. We will let you know if that time is available.
Are you interested in exploring the world? Having a hard time figuring out where to start? This program is designed to introduce the concept of travel through hostelling to first-timers.
Learn what makes hostelling great and how you can get involved in our international network, meet others, and begin to change yourself and the world!
Study Abroad 101
Did you know that studying abroad will not only allow you to immerse yourself in a new place and culture, but will also lead to increased professional development, job opportunities, and scholarships down the line? Getting there is not as hard as you might think!
