Individuals from other cultures may eat different food, listen
to different music, and speak a different language, yet they are just like the rest of us; they want freedom, respect, safety,
opportunity, friendship, and love. We are convinced that if more people could experience this same realization, we would
see a different attitude regarding immigration – an attitude not of fighting against, but of working with each other
to arrive at a solution that works for everybody. So, beyond offering a really cool international experience –
which we do! – our mission is to create this “just like me” awareness in our volunteers so that by participating
in our programs, they expand their perspective regarding other cultures and continue on to create positive change in the world.
