Program Alum

"Every aspect of the trip was incredible. I had so much fun. I learned about myself and skills that will help me, got to experience so many new things, and met so many amazing people. Being able to play lacrosse, the sport I love, in another country was an opportunity that I would have never imagined would come my way."

I had a great experience and would recommend this organization to anyone!! From beginning to end the staff and our tour guides we AMAZING!! Super grateful for the opportunity to be apart of the program."


Parent of Program Alum

"My daughter keeps telling people that, 'It was the experience of a lifetime, the best thing I've ever done.' To hear these words every time that someone asks makes it worth the cost and nerves of sending her abroad."
