It was an absolute dream come true for me. I was able to transfer my book learning into a real world application and make so many new friends.

Everyone was so welcoming and I just felt so brave and empowered like I never have before being an American. I felt so useful and appreciated.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience in Ghana with United Planet. I loved working with UP because of their emphasis on cross-cultural understanding… My experience with UP was phenomenal. I learned just how important it is to take the time to understand the perspectives and backgrounds of others…
It was an experience unlike anything I could have imagined and was nothing like what I expected; that’s what made it fun and unforgettable! I would go back in a heartbeat.
Happiness is a direction, not a place.
