This is an incredible experience for anyone who wants to study, volunteer, or intern abroad.

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.
