Our reasons for traveling have changed over the years.


It no longer matters what travelers do; it matters why they do it. Making bigger memories, filling journals with photos, and sharing their experiences with the world.


Our participants tell us that their program is about more than what they get in their host community or with their host family. It’s about what they can bring back. “From one gift come many.”

Make Your Travel Dreams Come True

Venture into places familiar or those you have yet to discover. No matter what you choose to do or where you choose to do it, we look forward to helping you get there.


You're In Safe Hands

Every aspect of your program is screened. The in-country staff screens host families, and you communicate with them before you accept a match. Jobs are vetted before they are offered to you.


Safety And Security

"I'm an adult with a college degree, but still my parents want to know I'm going to be safe when I travel abroad." Health and safety are our priorities. We are bound by a code of conduct set by The World Youth and Student Travel Conference. WYSTC is the leading organization for the global youth, student, and educational travel industry.


Real Life Experiences

Listen to our Alumni stories, and you'll realize how much value there is in a cultural exchange project. Talk to them by phone, read their blog posts, and watch their videos.


Experienced People

Commitment and longevity is our strength. Our newest employee has been here for eleven years. Our own family and friends have participated in our programs. Real people, real experiences, real awesome.
