Youth Expedition Projects (YEP)
Every year, our students get to travel across borders to countries like Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam for Youth Expedition Projects (YEP) where they work with an underserved community. These eye-opening experiences expand their worldview to gain a better understanding of socio-economic issues and nurture them to be socially responsible, active citizens.
