Heading off to college can be scary for someone who's never been on their own. It's a responsibility you have to be prepared for. Luckily, there are (fun) ways --like a semester abroad with ILP-- to prepare yourself before you dive head first into your first semester in college!
You can make a huge impact on the kids you are teaching English to or working with in the Orphanage Program! Here's how one ILP volunteer served her students outside of the classroom.
Traveling cheap is a learned art and not one for the faint of heart. It takes commitment, dedication to sticking to your budget, and sacrifices at times ... but it is SO WORTH IT!
Tell me if one of these scenarios sounds familiar to you: You're dreaming of volunteering abroad with ILP in China, but you have a serious boyfriend/girlfriend at home you don't want to leave? OR, you decide to spend a semester volunteering in Europe (you have been accepted, finished your documents and everything) and then you meet "the one". Well, if one of them does...
Meet Santiago- probably the cutest 5 year old in all of Mexico. He is an ILP(International Language Programs) student and has been learning English with ILP for 2 years. And, would you just check out those dance moves?
If you didn’t know, ILP has two programs: Exchange and Humanitarian. While they do have some similarities (both programs let you give back and make a difference!) there are some differences that can help you figure out what country and what program is going to be the best choice for you.
