Program Reviews:
Tessa Renee Newberry, Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding part of the program was undoubtedly the interactions with the students at Kyunghwa. It's an environment unlike anything other. The girls are all passionate and sweet; it was so different than any other school environment I'd ever been in. The support network is also really strong, not just with our KU peers but the teachers at the school are all so willing to help and make the experience a great one. I really feel like I connected with the community at Kyunghwa and even down in the town of Gwangju.

My favorite part of the program was working with the students and the volunteer opportunities we had. All of the students were amazing and bright and made me enthusiastic to teach as well!

Hazara Leon, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part about this program was that it gave me an opportunity to attend courses that I could directly apply to my internship. Student teaching at Kyunghwa's Girls School was a chance for me to discover what it is like to work as a teacher in a foreign country. I had the chance to acquire valuable skills that are useful for both work and everyday life.
