Safety is our priority
The safety of our students is one of the things we talk about most, and we are proud to say that we have never had a serious safety concern on any of our programs.
Not only are we extremely selective about placement locations to ensure a low-risk environment, but we also extensively train all of our on-program Site Managers prior to every program year. Site Managers are locals to the program site, and are available 24/7 to students, should they need assistance.
We provide each student with travel and health insurance, as well as a non-smartphone so that they will never be without the ability to call in an emergency. To learn more about best practices for safe travel, make sure to sign up for the free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) administered by the US Department of State.
