PROJECT CHILDREN SUMMER WORK TRAVEL PROGRAM "ABOUT US"


In 1995, Project Children decided to build on the success of the childrens program. The organisation extendeded its reach to university students by initiating the Summer Work Travel program. 


With such a large network of coordinators and host families built up over the years throughout the US, Project Children were able to pre-arrange a number of placements through their extensive contacts. In much the same way as the children’s program, students were brought over to the US during the summer to work and live. This gave the students the opportunity to gain some invaluable work experience in an international setting.

College and University students enrolled full time and pursuing studies at post-secondary accredited academic institutions located outside the United States come to the United States to share their culture and ideas with people of the United States through diverse temporary work and travel opportunities.

Now running for almost 20 years, over 600 students have taken part in the program. It has grown from the initial 10 students per summer, to over 45 students per summer. As with the children’s program, this has all been made possible through private donations and government grants, the hospitality of the host families, and the effort of the Project Children volunteers.
