My 16 year old daughter is fed up with her high pressure high school academic experience, and wants to try something more experiential for one semester of her junior year. She is very motivated, organized and has good people skills. European travel a plus, but the key criterion is joyful experiential learning, and of course a sense of professionalism and safety on the part of the program. Any suggestions?
I'm interested in traveling with some of my college students overseas. Have you done this? Did you work with a company like EF Tours? [more inside]
A group of us students are given the opportunity to go abroad over the Spring Break week in a (predominately) non-english speaking country. The location is up to us (war zones are of course off limits. I'm unsure of the distance limit, I believe South-East Asia is too far away, and St. Petersburg is the only option for Russia) and the cost is subsidized quite a bit. The purpose of the visit isn't for lounging around and seeing sites though, we will be conducting individual research in order to make a ~50 minute presentation back home. Obviously this is something that will come from the desires of the group, but I was hoping to get some input from the educated masses here at MeFi so that I could relay it back to the rest of the group.
Is teaching English abroad a feasible and realistic career plan? [more inside]
Looking to move to NYC and become an EMT. Got any advice of the "Man, I wish I knew that back when I started!" sort?

I just realized that I have 7 vacation days from 2009 that I need to use before the end of March or I will lose them. I'm considering taking a "destination" photo class somewhere for all or part of that time. I've already checked out the offerings at the Maine Media Workshop, but none of them really set my heart aflame. [more inside]
Is there any further action I can take to recoup the financial loss and and deal with the emotional frustration resulting from my university's swine-flu-panic decision to cancel a much-anticipated field research opportunity? [more inside]
I don´t have a brilliant academic career or anything. I live in Brazil, I just turned 24, and just recently majored in communication/journalism.

I think after 20 years in my post it is almost time for a sabbatical leave. Should my board approve this idea, please help me to think about some fun and educational plans for a year-long sabbatical adventure. I am in the non-profit health sector, an MD executive with a primary focus in community health. I am especially interested in developing my insights and leadership towards the broad determinants of health from practical community based approachs. I think travel out of the US would be of interest to both my family and me.

Travel & Tourism filter: I've been tasked with teaching a travel and tourism course for the rest of the school year. What would you have loved to learn about in a high school travel and tourism class? Conversely, is there anything that you wish you did learn?
Security Clearance/Foreign Service-filter: I'm thinking of a career in the Foreign Service when I get out of college (T-minus 4 years), which I am just now entering. While metafilter has had questions about this before, but my situation is am bit different (so I'm hoping the Foreign Service mefites from those threads can chime in). The most important distinction is that I'm looking to be a Security Engineering Officer, or in some other sort of engineering related role (which falls under "Management" I believe) not a diplomat. Much more after the jump... [more inside]

In about a month I will return from one of the greatest experiences of my life - a multicultural travelling creative extravaganza. Then what? [more inside]
I have one semester left in college (until the scholarship money runs out) and I would like to spend it abroad minoring in Spanish. As much as I love Spain, I would prefer to go somewhere more exotic and off the beaten path. I’m looking for adventure to accompany my education. I’ve only been to Mexico and Cuba and would like to get people’s perspectives and recommendations on other Latin American countries. If you were in my shoes, where would you go and why?
I'm a 35 year old male and am smart, single and fit but find myself feeling like time is running out. Perhaps too smart; I have a high IQ, whatever that is worth, but am not a college graduate and I find I still have a bit of a complex about this despite having been gainfully white collar employed for most of my adult life. I never started college and wouldn't even know where to begin. I meet people easily and am told that I am good looking. I was 30 before I realized that I had coasted so far on charisma. With an opportunity to make a life change in the next year what should this American do? Long term and short term answers are all welcome and travel is a possibility if your answer deems it necessary.
