"TO TRAVEL IS TO DISCOVER THAT EVERYONE IS WRONG ABOUT OTHER COUNTRIES."
- Aldous Hux
Dear AMPED Participant:
So you're amped about volunteering or interning abroad? Awesome! Your time in your host country is sure to be unforgettable.
Unlike merely traveling and taking on the role of a distant observer, volunteering/interning abroad immerses you in the culture and day-to-day living of a country and its people. As a participant, you live and see as the locals. You are challenged to step beyond your comfort zone. Your worldview is transformed. Your desire to learn and do more to help others is kindled. And you form relationships that will last a lifetime.
To reap the most rewards from your experience, we encourage you to take initiative. Your level of engagement is determined as much by your ability to step up as it is by your knowledge, skills, and creativity. In short, your experience is what you make it. And we are here to help make sure every moment lives up to your expectations.
We are excited to have you and we thank you for choosing AMPED Abroad to further your knowledge and understanding of people, communities, and cultures; and to grasp the importance of helping and sharing with others.
Cheers to your adventure!
Team AMPED Abroad
