SPOKANE, Wash., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --People to People Ambassador
Programs, the leader in global educational travel experiences for 50 years,
announces the expansion of the company's winter travel programs. Alongside
existing winter programs to India and Antarctica, four new programs will
provide high school and college students with fresh opportunities to increase
cultural awareness, gain an academic edge and explore the world.

"Shorter, intensive winter programs during holiday break allow us to meet the
demand among high school and college students for international travel options
that fit their busy schedule," said Tony Dombrowik, People to People
Ambassador Programs interim CEO. "But they also provide unique seasonal
opportunities, like visiting Machu Picchu during the South American summer or
being in Rome for the Christmas markets."

The new programs add to People to People's current roster of more than 40
programs for students from 5^th grade through college across all seven

New program highlights include:

Holiday Magic in London (High School)
Make mince pies, celebrate New Year's along the Thames, shop until you drop at
Harrods, meet with an active member of British Parliament, spend the day in
historic Canterbury and learn the art of pantomime; all in cozy winter time

Mediterranean Holiday: Barcelona to Rome (High School and Collegiate)
The Mediterranean still shines bright during the winter, and so do the year
end sales at Spanish and Italian shops and fashion houses that you will
frequent. Gain backstage access with our local in country guides to the
Colosseum in Rome and the architectural wonders of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona.
Bake traditional Italian holiday cookies for a homeless shelter in Rome and a
true highlight: visit the Vatican during Advent.

Mystical Monuments and Incan Adventures: Peru (High School and Collegiate)
"Check in" on New Year's in one of the most exotic countries on the planet.
Visit iconic Machu Picchu and Cuzco and see the glorious Incan ruins with
expert commentary from People to People's local guides, learn Incan crafts
with local Peruvian artisans, boost your inner zen and cultural intelligence
at an Andean spirituality seminar and give back in the town of Cuyuni by
rolling up your sleeves and helping the locals with their potato harvest.

Pura Vida: Costa Rican Excursion (High School)
Glamping is a term that best describes your luxury tent camping experience in
Costa Rica. Zip lining, night hiking and white water rafting are just a few
highlights of this adventurous program. Help the locals by planting trees in a
reforestation project and make lasting friends at an orphanage in Santa Ana
where together with your fellow delegates you help will out with community
service projects.

All winter programs depart mid December for collegiate level programs and
after Christmas for high school programs. For more information visit:
