Looking for something completely new? Wanting to really step out of your comfort zone and experience a different culture and way of life? Tired of the “traditional” international program destinations? Then you should participate in API's high school summer community service program in Thimphu, Bhutan with API and have the cultural experience of a lifetime!

Located between India and China, Bhutan is a landlocked Himalayan paradise. Often referred to as the “last Shangri-la”, Bhutan is known for its natural beauty, diverse landscapes, friendly people, and its official national philosophy of “Gross National Happiness“. To visit Bhutan is to step into a different world – one where concepts such as karma, happiness, tranquility, resourcefulness, and curiosity combine to transform you!

“From the moment you step off the plane, you get the sense that you're going to see and experience things you've never imagined. Being in Bhutan is like stepping into a completely different world - one that captivates you with its friendly people, amazing vistas, and relaxed atmosphere. It's good for the soul." - Jeramy J.
