WHY DO IT?
* Suit in the morning ... Horizon Bridge prides itself on placing college students into the most competitive and selective government training programs in the world, like the PROEXCA offices and cabildo regional network of Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
* ... Beach in the afternoon. Every location on each island is strategically and carefully chosen so that Horizon Bridge Fellows can finish their internships early afternoon and quickly change into casual clothes for enjoying the local beach, usually >70-degree weather even in January.
* Comprehensive Excursions. Instead of just being stuck behind a desk or at a computer, Horizon Bridge Fellows get high-exposure internship experiences that involve touring chambers of commerce, glimpsing international trade floors, and meeting local entrepreneurs.
* Tourism. Unlike the United States, where government is relatively low-impact, Horizon Bridge Fellows are embedded in bureaucracies that make up a large segment of the economy (~40%) and involve government control of tourist attractions and marketing them to the world.
* Intensive language immersion. While American college students take years of classes with little progress, those who use it in a professional environment while abroad can learn the language up to 3 times faster through professional immersion.
