SYA’s highest priority is to promote the health and safety of SYA students. While abroad, students are supported by a robust network of SYA adults trained in health and safety, including a Resident Director (RD), faculty, host parents and home office staff in Massachusetts. In addition, SYA provides students with necessary information so that they are empowered to conduct themselves in safe, healthy, and respectful ways. Finally, SYA offers decades of experience promoting student health and safety, and its schools operate in areas where students and staff have become integral members of the local community.
