Culture is a man made part of the environment. One of the biggest benefits is a moment, an event that integrates people from different backgrounds around the world.
Intercultural experiences help us to look at things from a different perspective, a fresh one. At the same time, we explore the identity of the other in order to discover some variations that are lacking in a limited culture, or centered on other values and principles.
I think Work & Travel has a great impact on the maturing of young students. It's a journey of self-knowledge, both spiritual and psychological. From my own experience in the United States, I say it is a step towards the personal development of an individual that comes to take into account new possibilities, new ideas presented in a multicultural environment. The major goal is to filter and combine the accumulated knowledge, and to generate an 'open' thinking and a 'universal' beneficial behavior, as it can be applied in a more extensive area.
We, the IntegralEdu, support those who choose to go to the US through the opportunity offered by WAT. Considering the variety of locations and job offers, we help them to consider all the implications, ensuring that they are a decision to provide comfort and enthusiasm. We continue to support this trip.
