Spain has long holiday periods compared to many countries, with the school year running from mid-September to mid-June. The long summer holidays can present a problem for parents in terms of organising care and activities for their teenagers.
Many families choose to go away at some point during the long summer break – taking children out of school during term-time for holidays is strongly discouraged.
Many museums hold workshops and youth oriented sessions during school holidays. Local tourist information offices and town halls have details.
Within the European Union and beyond there are plenty of study exchanges for young people.
The Spain Exchange website contains useful information related to exchanges within Spain and throughout the world.
For more information see the sections on Study Abroad and International Exchange.
Voluntary work is also popular and often allows young people to gain valuable work experience. The European Youth Portal is a good source of information on projects and provides links to organisations looking for voluntary workers in and outside Spain.
