The Week Without Walls trip is offered to all YIS High School students as another type of educational experience. This is not an optional activity for students and participation in the program is an expectation. Team building, self-awareness, social responsibility, service learning as well as other academic themes are woven into this annual event. Middle School students participate in trips in Myanmar, while High School students travel further afield and spend a longer period of time in one of a host of Southeast Asian countries. Students are encouraged to socialize and work with their classmates. To this end, family members, maids and/or drivers are not allowed to accompany YIS students on WWW trips—unless special circumstances dictate. Details are provided by organizers of each trip throughout the year.
