Yes, I recommend this program

I love Greenheart!

I am so lucky to of traveled with Greenheart. They were extremely supportive through the entire process even when there was bumps in the road. They figured it all out. My family hosted an exchange student with a different company who were difficult and our family really struggled. That's why we were so iffy about sending me on an exchange year. Although, Greenheart has completely restored our faith in exchange!
If you and your family and worried about starting the process or even just have questions about exchange, Greenheart are your people. Even in you don't want to call, their website is beautiful and informative, and their staff are quick to respond and helpful in every way. An exchange will change your life, so put your trust in Greenheart to support you and your family.

Greenheart Travel High School Study Abroad Program

This program was excellent in every way! My host family was wonderful and I felt like I really got immersed in the community. The staff was very supportive and helpful in both the application process and the experience. This experience really helped me grow as a person and I continue to see the effects of my stay after the program finished. I highly recommend this program to any high school students looking to study abroad.
