What People Are Saying

Quality

The partners in Costa Rica are fabulous! Everything was well-organized, and kids were always engaged. Our guide, Jimmy, truly is an educator and ambassador of his country. All of the students and leaders really enjoyed his personality, love of his country and knowledge. The Family Stay Experience was also very wonderful!

Take Risks

My advice to future participants traveling on this program is to fully step outside of your comfort zone in order to get the most out of this opportunity. You will never regret speaking more of your target language, trying new dishes native to your country, making new friends, or partaking in amazing activities that you normally wouldn't!

Lifelong Value

Don't hesitate. Sometimes the value of this life-changing experience is not immediately known but will come in handy later down the road during a job interview or some career enhancing move. You never know. Employers are actually looking for someone who has done something outside their comfort zone.

Gain Skills

My host dad made jokes in Spanish all the time, and by the end of the week I could make jokes back in Spanish, which made me proud.
