Pricing, Logistics, Accommodation and Travel
What are the program fees?
The program fees are € 2,900 per student. The fees include the entire costs of the trainings, all materials and all lunches. Please contact us for a quote including all dinners on the five training days, all cultural activities (incl. tickets), all transport to and from the hotel as well as airport transfer.
How will the students get to and from the UN headquarters every day?
An all-inclusive shuttle service can be provided. Students will be picked up in the mornings and also transported from the training venue to the different cultural activities across the city. After the cultural activities, students will be picked up and returned to their hotel.
Are accommodations and travel to Vienna included?
No, we invite schools to make their own travel arrangements and book hotels. We are, however, happy to recommend hotels that offer special packages for YTP groups as well as refer you to full service travel agencies based in Vienna.
Which of the cultural activities will the students actually attend?
Before coming to either Vienna or New York the school can decide which of the cultural activities to make available to their students. The students can then express their preferences for three of the activities which we will try to accommodate to the best of our abilities. The final cultural program will be made available in advance.
Are all the cultural activities available year-round?
Whereas most activities are available all year, some are seasonal. We will be able to provide a definitive list, once the date for the training program is set.
