Introducing: New Semester Program!

We are exploring new frontiers! We're excited to announce a 3-month semester program in Morocco & Spain. If trekking in the Atlas mountains, living with a host family in Marrakech, and working with a NGO focused on supporting the migrant community in Spain sounds interesting to you, dive deeper by clicking the link below.

About

Make friends with a camel and ride out into the Saharan dunes, wondering at the vast emptiness of the desert. Walk the cobbled streets of the architecturally stunning city of Seville—you may just witness an impromptu flamenco performance. Immerse yourself in the magic and mystery of Morocco and Spain.

Experiential education: Absorb the arabic language and practice your conversational skills while exploring the labyrinthine Moroccan marketplace.

Community: Visit the migrant “detention” centers in Tarifa on the coast of Spain and discuss issues of human migration with your group and local experts.

Intercultural Exchange: Engage with Moroccan NGOs focusing on women’s rights, youth empowerment, and human rights for migrant populations and climate refugees.

Note: this is a 3-month long semester program.

As a Carpe Diem participant, you'll not only have access to our immersive, service-based programming and stellar staff -- but you can opt to also receive up to 18 college credits (an official transcript from Portland State University) and may be eligible for financial aid. We're one of the only Gap Year providers on the market that offers these options for a nominal fee.
