What our participants have to say:


“I have so much fun at work and also my managers really appreciate my help and rely on me a lot which makes me feel special and needed. And that's not all - I get to use most of the recreational activities (hang gliding, kiteboarding, kayaking, SUPing etc.) we (Kitty Hawk Kites) offer FOR FREE and I spend my spare time doing all kinds of interesting things so I'm really having the best time of my life so far! Also my colleagues and roommates are AWSOME so we all feel and act like a big and united family: we take care of each other; we cook and eat together; we go out a lot... and so on, and so on... I can't really list all of the things we do together but we have so much fun all the time!” – Vanya T.


“The managers are really nice and helpful, at the same time, the job is very useful to improve my language skills and to know American culture.” – Omer U.
