Global Young Leaders Conference (For 15-18 years old)
2010 China Sample Daily Schedule (For US students, this costs $5,390 and includes airfare to China from the designated gateway cities, housing, program materials, breakfasts, dinners and private motor coach transportation within and between Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. If you excludes the US-China air-tickets for non-US students, it costs $4,390).
It is EXPENSIVE in my humble opinion. I also found that there are too many activities in a day, this may make a learning experience less fruitful due to overloaded information. Furthermore, there are too many touristic / sightseeing activities which can be done by any normal tourists. I expect something more, meeting the learders of host countries, etc.
