New Program ... Same Summer Camp
Spend five weeks as a language camp counselor in a summer camp in Italy. Live like a native Italian while living with a host family. This is not your typical summer job. It is a truly an exciting and unique way to spend the summer. Each week day, you become a counselor, a teacher, a tutor, a play-pal, an arts and crafts guru, a role model for Italian campers. Four hours each day are spent at the camps. In the afternoons and weekends explore the area and become a local! View The Program Page
Apply by December 1 and use Promo Code Italy17 and receive $200 off the program fee.

We'd like you to meet these people:
Kristine Zhang, Malta Internship
I believe the journey is just as important as the destination. Thus, I try to walk to places whenever possible, if it's not too far away. Walking there and taking in all the sights I would have missed if I took a bus is so rewarding, and it makes the arrival at the destination feel significantly more accomplished.
For example, I recently walked to Malta's capital city of Valletta from my apartment in Hamrun, which is about a one hour walk. It would be been much easier to take the bus. But I would have missed exploring Floriana, the district just before Valletta, and it's areas. Valletta is now more than just a city name, it has become a story with context embedded into my memory. Indeed, no landmark beats a life-changing experience.
Avana Garza, Ireland Au Pair
Just living here and taking care of the kids is more rewarding and meaningful to me than when I see different sights. Don't get me wrong, those are amazing but I love taking care of the kids and their love and appreciation is better than the feeling you get seeing a landmark.
Josie Gosen, Au Pair in France
Have a look at Josie's video of her experience in France as an Au Pair. She was an au pair for a few short months and had the opportunity to travel and really make the most of the experience.
Please make note of our first annual Alumni meet up in June 2017. We have chosen stunning Boulder, Colorado for this event. Boulder sits at 5,430 feet above sea level and about 25 miles Northwest of Denver. More about this event in the coming months. We hope you'll hold the date.
Through our hashtag #SeekExperiences, our goal is to build upon the community that already lives through our thousands of fans and network of alumni, volunteers and teachers.
