One theme each of our United States programs shares is the idea of home. Some students work with refugee children who are assimilating into a new home, some help the residents of New Orleans rebuild their homes, and some learn to feel at home amid the vast natural beauty of our national parks. International students gain new perspectives about the United States, and American students often feel as though they are really getting to know their home country for the first time.
Even if the United States is your home country, you are bound to encounter something unexpected on one of these programs. The United States is diverse in every sense, boasting a wide range of sights, activities, people, food, and cultures. You’ll be surprised by the issues you are exposed to and amazed at how much you will discover.
