YESasia is an educational travel operator dedicated to providing authentic cultural journeys for young people in northeast Thailand. A member of the YES Thailand Education Group our background and experience in youth educational travel spans over two decades. Our organization was established to develop Thailand educational programs that guarantee industry standards of quality. We are the only Thai registered organization offering educational travel to international youth in this way.
STANDARDS OF QUALITY
As the youth educational travel industry continues to expand in developing countries like Thailand, there is a growing need for independent operators to follow better guidelines of good practice. YESasia makes on-going efforts to stay up to date with recommendations from accrediting bodies internationally.
The way we interact and provide services to young people internationally is determined using guidelines of good practice from the UK. These include;
Managing payments in a secure way that ensures access to full refunds under circumstances whereby any programs are unexpectedly cancelled or curtailed.
Our responsibilities to youth in providing programs are clearly provided on the YESasia website and explain how these meet our ongoing organizational vision and mission.
All our program rules and the terms and conditions for each program are clearly provided on the YESasia website.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The safety of young people on our programs is our first concern. YESasia uses guidelines outlined in BS 8848:2014
the British Standard Specification for provision of visits, fieldwork, expeditions and adventurous activities outside the UK. These include;
Independently audit safety plans and risk assess activity locations used for YESasia programs in northeast Thailand.
Verify registration and licenses of government approved schools used for YESasia programs in Thailand.
Operate programs using a quality management system that meets ISO 9001:2008 standard.
