Hi! I'm Nicole. I just got accepted into going to Australia this summer. :]

For those of you who went there, how did you like it? Any memorable events?
I'm really excited to go, and I've always wanted to go to Australia.

Also, I have to raise the money by myself. Are there scholarships available?
I'm also going to try to raise money by writing letters.
Is it best to ask for any amount, or ask for atleast $1? I'm also going to add in it, if you cannot pay, please pass this on to a friend, family member, neighbor.. Do people actually make a lot this way?

Sorry about the questions. I'm just curious. :)

Japan Trip 2008 [Oct. 17th, 2007|07:15 pm]
People to People International
[mood |confusedconfused]

Umkay. I have to know. I'm getting mixed messages on this thing. It's expensive, but worth it, it's fun, but not for you, etc. 
Concern One: Time to look around. Do we have any, or are we herded about like cattle?
Concern Two: Food. I'm rather finicky, though I have found I like the junk food and candy that gets here from Japan. Is there sometimes a choice, or are you stuck everytime?
Concern Three: Rest. I have stamina, but not for two weeks straight. Any relaxing time?

I'd really like any answers you have. My interview's a week from now, but I don't trust asking 'salesmen' questions.
BTW: It's gonna cost like, 7k. Fundraising ideas?

Okay, so I just got back from Australia.  Despite a few things (crazy leaders, anyone?) it was truly the best time of my life.  I miss it so much and would give anything to be back in the Outback or anywhere in Australia really.  But that's not the point...

I'm considering doing another trip next year, if the itinerary is good and the leaders seem normal...all that jazz.  My DM (who was the greatest person ever!) and a few alumni on the trip said that you get to do something called "alumni choice" where you choose the next itinerary.  Can someone explain this?  Will I get to do any itinerary P2P offers that I want?  (I already have quite a few that I like A LOT!)

Thanks so much!

I'm in a really unfortunate position.  I don't really feel like going into detail, but it looks like I'm going to have to pull out of the trip that I was really looking forward to going on this summer.

At this point, how much money am I going to lose?  Anybody know?

Just felt like posting, and seeing how much I'm going to have to pay back to my dad.  This sucks.  :(

I'm new here so...

I've traveled twice with P2P once between 7th-8th grade and another between 8th-9th grade. The first time I went to Australia, the next time to Europe (France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy).

Today, I received a letter in the mail about a new trip that was offered to "honored alumni" only. It's called Imperial Capitals of Europe. For me, the trip departure date is July 3-5 and the application has to be turned in on Feb 15. The trip sounds really exciting however, my last two trips were paid mostly by my parents. The first one entirely the second one I raised about 1,000 dollars by mailing letters to businesses (this was the one way they suggested at meetings)

I don't have a job but I am going to be getting one, I turned 16 not so long ago and was waiting for basketball/cheerleading season to finish which the season ends in 3 weeks but State for the girls doesn't end until March 10th and March 17th for the boys. My school won state for girls and was 5th for boys last year. So until then I can't dedicate all of my time to it. I looked up state law and found that I could 26 weeks for schools weeks and 50 non-school weeks. I figured I could raise about 5,000 or so dollars by working. I'm still 700 plus spending money and extra things short. So anything you have tried to funding would be really helpful.

To summarize:

If you funded for your trip how did you do so; I'm going to try to raise about 1,500?
Have you received any news about this Alumni Trip?

Hello all!

Okay, so i was a member of this group way back when I got my first invitation to P2P. I asked a couple of questions and what not, but i never actually did take the trip. Instead I opted to go to Europe with another company.

But anyways, I've gotten my fair share of invitations to P2P. I've been invited to the Australian trip, two European trips (can't remember which ones off the top of my head at the moment) and one Sports Ambassador program as well. But I've looked into it and I'm more interested in their GYF Humanitarian Conference or the PTPI's Peace Camps.

I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these programs and could tell me a little about them seeing as their website doesn't give much information. Anything you could tell me would be wonderful.

Thank you muchos!

Visa [Nov. 29th, 2006|01:26 pm]
People to People International

I'm currently a permanent resident/legal alien. I just found out that I would need 4 visas (for each country I'll be visiting for the P2P trip) if I don't have a US Passport (I have a Philippine passport). Is that true?

Is it also true that acquiring a US Passport is a long process? My mom is in the process of getting her US citizenship and I don't know how long that will take.

I really want to go. :(
