Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting our website and hopefully finding our opportunities enticing! We are very excited for our Greece program this winter and have a lot of fun and exciting things planned. We are also taking applications for our programs next summer in […]
Recently the U.S. state of Texas was hit by a massive category 4 hurricane that has destroyed almost everything in its path. Many of you may have friends or family who was impacted by the vicious storm. Over 50 inches of rain has fallen accompanied by rising rivers and dams. Many of us cannot imagine the terror and stress and loss that is being endured by the victims. Families with children and pets have lost everything they have worked their whole lives to achieve.
As the rain continues to pour on Houston we ask you to keep these people in your thoughts and prayers and to help in any way that you can. At the current time it is impossible for us to organize a relief team to send to Houston. But we have compiled a list of links for everyone who is interested in helping from home.
We ask that you take a minute and look through these links and give a little piece of you to those suffering in Houston.
