“It takes one minute to meet someone, a day to know them, a week to love them, but a lifetime to forget them.”

-Christian Bustos, Summer 2011

“I know I personally grew extremely close to my host family during the stay and living the way they did changed my views on many things. I believe I have become a wiser, stronger, more independent person from this program.”

-Sija Los, Summer 2014
