Projects Abroad is a global organization formed around the need for gap year programs abroad designed for students taking a break from studying. Since its inception, Projects Abroad has expanded to offer high school volunteer programs, and a vast variety of programs geared towards those taking a gap year or a career break.

There is some difficulty communicating with the volunteer advisor before the project, because they actually do not live in Mexico. It would be much less confusing and organized to have a staff member in the Mexico office to be the primary communicator before volunteers arrive.

The breaks given in this program were very long. For example, we would be sent to our host families in the middle of the day for about 3 hours. I would have loved to spent this time sightseeing instead of staying in the house.
