Florence internship review

A nice three weeks in Italy - good balance between learning/studying and getting a chance to see the city. Very lucky with accommodation as well, located right in the heart of the city and right by the river.

PAA San Jose music volunteering

My host family/home in Costa Rica was amazing, and the teachers/staff at the Costa Rican Language Academy were extremely helpful and supportive of my Spanish learning and volunteering. The people at Sion were very helpful as well throughout my week of volunteering there.

A productive 2 weeks in Costa Rica

Music volunteering in Costa Rica was a great experience. I unfortunately arrived at a time when there were many holidays so my volunteer time was cut shorter than I expected. However, I still learned a lot about Spanish and music while teaching in Costa Rica.

One of the best experiences of my life!

I was blown away with this program-especially the instructors hired through the West End on Demand program. I enjoyed the diversity of the students and the free time to see shows or explore the city in the evenings.

Good experience

I'm glad that I did this program. I feel like I really got to know the city of London very well, and I really enjoyed my internship placement. I was not fond of the Stay Club, because everything was extremely cramped and you had no personal space. I also have been trying to figure out why the program fee is so high, because I cannot seem to figure out where all of the money went to exactly. Overall, I enjoyed my time in London.
