Academic Year in America is committed to making the health and safety of our participants, host families and Local Coordinators our top priority. We continue to closely monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. State Department. We also consult with a third-party travel security specialist that advises on risks associated with travel to different areas of the world as well as guidelines from local authorities in areas that may impact our programs and participants.
AYA is currently working to place students with host families and high schools for the upcoming academic year. AYA will follow all recommended and required health protocols for students, host families and schools. We are hopeful that things will be closer to normal this summer and that our host families and students will reap the benefits of their AYA experience while following safety protocols.
We will continue to monitor updates regarding COVID-19 closely and will provide updates as needed. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus related to the Academic Year in American program, please reach out to AYA at 203-399-5417.
