Adelante Abroad finds a specific, unique internship for each individual candidate. For this reason, our annual candidate numbers are never in the thousands (as with some other study and language programs) but rather in the 100’s. We truly customize our programs to you, our candidates! On average, we send anywhere from one to ten candidates to each of our international Intern in or Study Abroad programs every month. While the majority of participating candidates are aged about 20 to 26, we have had a growing number of younger ‘gap year’ candidates, plus a steady number of older candidates who wish to experience a city in a different way than as a typical tourist.
The Adelante program illuminates the language, personal, cultural and corporate aspects in a way that no other program does, through work assignments and independent living situations, so candidates experience life abroad much like a local. The program is more than the four hours each day of studying or interning, it is also about absorbing, experiencing and learning the life and language of the host city. We provide this amazing ‘open door’ and what each candidate chooses to do upon walking though it is largely up to them.
Initially, candidates see everything based on their own cultural expectations. As part of the learning process some lifestyle adjustments may be necessary and by the end of your program, whether you intern, study, teach or volunteer, you are sure to return home (IF you decide to return home!) with a different set of values – a blend of who you were and the new person you’ve become.
