What Students Say

"This program gives athletes the chance to experience being abroad apart from your family. Traveling by yourself makes you more independent. Along with being in a different country, you also get to help those in need and make relationships with people that you never would have met.

I learned a lot about many different cultures within South Africa. I stepped out of my comfort zone and taught children that spoke English as their second language. I gained a lot of self-confidence working with Project Playground!"

"SAA was just amazing. I honestly went into it terrified. I didn't know any Spanish, I was an introvert, and I thought I'd get tired of being there. By the end, that all changed. I'm pretty capable in Spanish now. I am more outgoing. And I cried when I left because I was sad to leave! SAA was a life-changing experience that I would suggest to anyone. Costa Rican culture changed my priorities in life and now I'm happier for it."

"This experience has empowered me to take hold of my future. As an intern in Valencia Spain I took every opportunity to learn. I learned about the culture, people, and language of Spain. I learned about job opportunities in a foreign country and I learned to network and make wonderful relationships with locals. In doing so, I feel equipped with the knowledge and connections to do well upon graduating from college and enthusiastically enter with workforce!"
