When is the best time to approach Concordia if I’m interested in sending a group overseas? We normally ask groups to allow a 12-month build up period, so that we can contact our international partners and select the best destinations/projects for you. Depending on the brief you give us, it usually takes time to identify the best project for each group. Please note that due to the way our overseas partners work we cannot always confirm your precise project details until a few months before the project starts. These projects are not off-the-shelf projects, but tailored to the needs, composition and interests of the group as well as trying to meet a real need in the local community.
