Good start for high school graduates

I've always liked to study and my dream was to visit India and so I managed. I enjoy my stay at the school, met a lot of nice people, some of them friends for life.

I did not always agree with everything in the program but it was totally worth it to pass through and fulfill my Indian dream. The work with kids was amazing! Although, of course, the culture shock was also something....

What would you improve about this program?
A bit more organization skills training for everyone won't hurt

Great experience!

This was my first after school experience abroad and it was great! Loved the self studies, loved the seminars at the school, all the different activities, evening programs, yes, sometimes it feels like you are getting a submarine disease, since you live in the mountains but in summer the place just blooms with possibilities.

Work in India was challenging however we had support from the project leader, we could travel around as well, during weekends and holidays to make most out of the stay in the country.

What would you improve about this program?
Sometimes hard to deal with different peolpe from different countries but it is rewarding and the children just love you!
