It is a meaningful learning journey in the beauty of authentic Italy. It is geared for teens experiencing similar issues, who typically manage to get by during the school year, paying an internal price of self-criticism and conflicts with the world around them. Some of our teens are transitioning through schools or living situations, and come to Free Spirit and Kare&Kamaleote to enable a smoother and successful transition. It is also geared for teens that want to make a travel experience full of meaning for personal growth.
