Great study abroad program. All of the staff at World Endeavors are wonderful and help you every step of the way!

Lauren OIntern in Australia

This is an incredible experience for anyone who wants to study, volunteer, or intern abroad. I didn't get the chance to do it in college but I am so happy I found this program to help me do this out of college. Every employee who helped me was incredibly kind and understanding. I recommend this to anyone who hasn't had an abroad experience and would like one!

Megan MIntern in Australia

It was amazing! Cannot speak highly enough about it! It was so great to be on my own, day by day, doing whatever I wanted to! It was an amazing experience and I grew a lot! "My experience was everything I hoped it would be. I learned so much while traveling about myself, about what I would like to do in the future, and I greatly enjoyed my internship and can see myself continuing to coach in the future. My internship greatly caters to my upcoming classes this school year, and I feel more prepared and excited now that I have experiences I can apply to what I’m learning. I reached my goal of getting out of my comfort zone as an international intern and learned a lot about myself and enjoyed the process.

Magaret GVolunteer in Australia

Australia is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been! My internship placement was extremely welcoming and I learned so much from my experience. I also loved my host family and felt at home after only a couple weeks. It's the perfect program to go abroad for an extended period of time.
