Camp Leaders is a top opportunity for students to work and travel abroad. They'll head to America from June-August, and gain enriching cultural exchange experience.

Why we do it:

Today's young people are on a search for meaning, belonging and passion. Across the board, we believe that cultural exchange is the way to inspire them - and help them become better students, employees, and human beings.

Who it's for:

Camp Leaders is an ideal summer opportunity for students, as the timing and eligibility requirements match up perfectly with the break between semesters.

Each applicant will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and some may not be eligible for the required visa, but most students are a fit for our programs.
