  • Team Susanne

    We have successfully placed and supported over hundreds of volunteers, interns and language course students over the last ten years.
    Seeing them succeed in gaining international experiences and adapting to a new cultural environment is most rewarding.
    It is my passion to share my own volunteer experience with our programme participants and to help them gain intercultural experience.
