Hi i got a letter in the mail (yeah mail lol) and its from People to People International. Its says im invite to travel and study in England Wales and Ireland (many places i would love to go). Well i called the place and they said i could Better Business Beau ( i guess thats haow its spelled) and they said the trip will cost around 2,600-5,200 depending if i do fundraisers or qualify for scholarships. Now heres my questions
1. Has anyone done this or anything else from the place/ company i guess you call it
2. is that a good price considering im in florida.?
Thank you for all your help
P.S. i know my spelling and grammer isnt the best so please try and excuse it.

Though I have never done it, I think People to People is an awesome program!! You get a chance to go to other countries and stay with people from that country and go to their school and all that jazz!!
The People to People organization only send out invites to gifted students (though I'm not sure where the line for "gifted" is) I'm homeschooled, but attended a week long camp at a college and took some cool courses for the week so that's how they got my name.
First, I reccomend, If you haven't already, attend the informational session they should have in your area, you'll learn a lot more about the program and see what a great time other kids have had! This was very helpful to me but unfortunately I wasn't able to go because of the money.
About the money, I live in PA and that's what they told me it would cost as well so I don't think they chare differently depending on where you are...
I think that if you are willing to go the distance and make the money This could be the experiance of a lifetime. (And somthing to brag about to your friends hehehehe!)

I wouldn't reccomend going on one of those trips because even if you do all the fundraisers and stuff, I would imagine they hit you with a bunch of extra hidden costs that you didn't agree to. If you really want to do something like this, you should call the Better Business Beauru to check out the company. If they don't have a good reputation or if the Better Business Beauru has never heard of them, DO NOT SEND THEM YOUR MONEY. [ devilspawn_666's advice column | Ask devilspawn_666 A Question ]

But from those people I heard it was really fun and they made a lot of friends. Also, I guess the pricing is OK considering its fun and you learn all about the place your in. its a really great oppurtunity!
