What People Say

Kamaria, Spain

"I had a great experience in this exchange. I was able to evolve my social skills, educate myself more on serious issues affecting everyone globally and practice team building skills during discussions. My favourite part of the exchange were the weekly discussions, I couldn't wait to meet with my group members to hear their opinions on global issues that I either have not thought too much about or were extremely passionate about. They allowed me to open my eyes to new ideas to create a change in my community and I'm very grateful for this experience. I would highly recommend giving this program a try if you want to develop your leadership skills and learn more about global issues while having discussions with people from different cultures; it will broaden your horizons and definitely make you a better person coming out of it."
