    Why is there a program fee?

    If a program abroad is free it most likely has funding from the government to cover your start-up costs. Somebody has to pay for your expenses. While we do try to keep our programs as cheap as possible (we are a 501c(3) non-profit!) there are some costs associated with running a program when it does not have any direct external funding. Providing your programming and support costs money. While we’d love to offer everything for free, we have to stay open for business!

    Here’s the base of what is included in our program fees:

  • Insurance
  • Orientation excursions and hotel accommodation
  • Airport pick-up and transfers. We’ll pick you up and pick up the tab!
  • Accommodation with a vetted Italian host family
  • 24/7 emergency phone number to reach us anytime
  • Administrative costs of placement
  • Support staff in the Chicago office and our partner offices all over the world.
  • Pre-departure preparation: Vaccinations? Documents required for entry? Don’t worry, we’ve done this a lot. We’ll make sure you think of everything before you even realize you needed to think about it.
  • Bottom line, you’re investing in smooth sailing and having a reputable organization make sure you’ll be landing in a good situation. We’ll make sure your new host country is ready to welcome you to a safe and secure experience.
