International Friendship: How the Summer Work Travel program impacted my global view
This is hands down the best Summer Work Travel program. I advise everyone to participate and have a truly unforgettable summer.
By: Viacheslav Volodymyrovych, Summer 2016 Work and Travel participant
I am a first-time participant of the CCI Greenheart Work and Travel program. I was pleasantly surprised with my first day in the United States; The U.S is an amazing country, and the people here are very kind and open. I immediately made friends from all over the world, including a girl from Thailand and two guys from Saudi Arabia.
I taught my new friends some basic Ukrainian and they picked up on the language quickly. I learned a lot while I was teaching them, too, as they taught me about their own cultures as well. I can now say “Hello” and “Goodbye” in Thai and Arabic! I’ve had a fantastic time with my new friends, as they show great interest in my culture and traditions. For example, I made Ukrainian soup, and my friends loved it!
I am extremely thankful to have been part of the CCI Greenheart Work and Travel program. It has been a great opportunity to visit the United States and meet new people. This is hands down the best Summer Work Travel program. I advise everyone to participate and have a truly unforgettable summer.
