Advice for Parents

Preparing for Opportunities

Traveling abroad is a decision that will impact and influence a young life in many positive ways. Working, interning and living abroad not only opens doors of opportunity, it opens minds. The immense rewards of cultural exchange are indisputable, but we also know the concerns you may have about your child traveling away from home. You may also question if the investment will reap the rewards. We understand.

Many of us are parents, too, but we’re also experts in cultural exchange. In our decades of experience, we have witnessed the life-enriching benefits of global travel. We work hard with your child before they leave home to make sure that they are well prepared and informed. Once they arrive at their new temporary home, they will have resources to help them adjust, although we’re often amazed how easily they adapt and make new friends!

We’re selective about the companies we work with and only engage with those businesses that understand their roles as hosts to your children. Our employers are reputable, well established and committed to the principles of cultural exchange. They are truly good companies who want to do good things for your child and their customers, community and country. They join us in a common goal to create meaningful experiences and lasting connections.

There’s a lot to consider and we invite you to thoroughly check us out. We’re a designated sponsor of the U.S. Department of State and accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and we have helped hundreds of thousands of young people around the world realize their dream of working and traveling abroad.

We encourage you to support your child’s passion for embarking upon this incredible adventure. You’ll be amazed watching them grow in experience and perspective, flourishing as more independent and enlightened global citizens.

We raise our children so they can fly on their own and soar to incredible heights.

Please contact us. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

“By going abroad, my daughter realized how truly capable she was. Before the trip, she was a little nervous and unsure how she would feel being on her own. She returned a more confident, interesting and independent person.”

“Our children are only as brilliant as we allow them to be.”  ― Eric Micha’el Leventhal
