"A great group of students participated in the China Summer Teaching Program in 2011 — three weeks in a beautiful and remote area of the Hunan province. They taught, traveled, hiked, made bonds, and ate a whole lot of wonderful food.
“Teaching for 6 days in Kathmandu was a wonderfully rewarding experience, although it certainly had its challenges. Education is happening there; it’s just not built out to the capacity one would hope.
"It was the most eye-opening experience of my entire life. I saw things and did things that will stay with me forever and the way that I see the world and make decisions has been completely altered. I have a newfound perspective that I hope to keep and maintain long after this quest has left the close peripheries of my mind." - Victoria Gan, 24, India 2011 (4 Week Education Program)

"My experience in Jordan was an amazing experience, from the moment I arrived I became immersed in the culture. I learned so much about the country, the people and myself through my volunteer quest in Jordan." - Sarah McNeil, 20, Indonesia (6 Months, Teaching Quest)
"I taught English twice a day at the orphanage; one class in the morning and one in the afternoon. Most nights I would stay back to watch them perform traditional dances for visitors of the orphanage; they performed three nights per week. In my spare time during the day, I would just play games with them and sometimes ride with them to school..." - Brendon Lim, 23, Cambodia (4 Weeks, Orphanage)
