As is the case for NH20 (2020-21 school year), there will be three Departure Dates for our year program students in Spring 2022.
Return travel will be scheduled approximately 1-2 weeks after the end of host school activities as defined by the graduation and/or prom date (as indicated by Regional Field Specialist when assigning the school placement in Global Link) in the Spring of 2022 on one of three return dates in 2022:
- Early June
- Late June
Exact return travel dates for specific students will be available in Global Link by the time of student arrivals.
Sponsored Program participant departure dates will follow a similar timeline to past years with student departures beginning in late May through June 2022 depending on their program. More specific dates will be made available once the Department of State has confirmed actual departure dates.
