Program Reviews:
Summer 2016 Participant
The staff was friendly, helpful, welcoming, and professional

Kaila Mailin Anderson, Summer 2017 Participant
Since we stayed at 2 different homestays, we really had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the culture. We did volunteer services around the city. We also went to Zumba and other neighborhood events. It made me feel really welcomed and like I was actually part of the community.

Kaila Mailin Anderson, Summer 2017 Participant
I definitely feel like this program was very valuable in relation to the cost. I feel like this was a great use of my money because we did so many things for what seemed like not so much money.

I gained the confidence to speak Spanish which will allow me to one day become fluent. I truly believe that after this trip I will be able to carry on a conversation in Spanish and have the capabilities of being fluent.
