Health and Safety

The best way to achieve a healthy and safe global learning experience is to inform yourself about basic health and safety issues before leaving California or the U.S. and make informed and responsible decisions once in your host community.

You should:

  • Carefully read all pre-departure materials.
  • Register your trip with the US Department of State.
  • Review State Department health and safety information for your specific country.
  • Become familiar with on-site emergency contacts and plans.
  • Stay abreast of local developments.
