Summer 2018 Participant
I found the projects I completed during my internship to be the most rewarding. I developed and implemented a membership platform for Transitions Online Magazine, and learned a lot from that.

Marcea A Say, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was having a chance to understand the working culture of Prague. I really got a sense of what life in the Czech Republic feels like.

Thomas Charles Green, Summer 2017 Participant
The internship I did consisted of working with and helping disabled children in Prague. My experience with these children was without a doubt the most rewarding thing. Many of the children could not speak at all and if they did it wasn't English. This put me in a situation I have never been in, but getting to know the kids and my coworkers was extremely rewarding.
