    "Dear SOL, I can’t tell you enough about what a great trip we all had! I am still somewhat in shock – when I travel I always expect about half of the stuff not to work out. But that was not at all the case this time! And all of the minor changes worked out for the better (we switched one day at Hogar for a day at a private nursing home). It was so nice to see the differences between the 2 facilities!" View Less

    "What a terrific experience we had in Oaxaca. We simply can’t say enough about the Sol program. Except that we wish we could have stayed longer! Sol is professional, super organized, on top of all details, rapidly responsive, honest, fair, ethical, friendly…the best of the programs I’ve worked with. My daughter was a Sol student and had excellent instruction and homestay. She’s done two Sol programs — the other in Buenos Aires — and wants to do another." View Less

    "I have got to say, this may be my favorite of all the site visits I’ve done. Thank you so much for your hospitality. While I did also participate on the Argentina SOL group site visit a couple years ago, I feel that this site visit was so much fuller and richer, in that I got to participate in the student orientation, the student city tour, and was invited to the SOL Granada office and shown detailed information about how students are placed with host families, and the correspondence between the program director and students. I will be able to better advise the students about the program now, and…words cannot express how much I loved it. It’s an amazing program. Your host families all seem wonderful, the schools you work with are excellent, and Granada itself is an amazing place. Thank you again Germán, for everything you did to make it a great visit. I hope to see you again sometime!" View Less

I learned so much from my time on the ground and look forward to encouraging our students to consider the SOL offerings.

    "I have led Social Work programs all over the world for the past 10 years, and SOL Education Abroad in Costa Rica is the most professional and meaningful that I have experienced. From the first contact with SOL Education, we were “sold!” The staff members were very responsive and provided an alternative Spring Break trip in Heredia, Costa Rica that was tailored to our specific requests! The students obtained an educational experience related to the violence against women that could not have been replicated in the classroom. Further, the service learning component of the trip allowed students to engage in positive social change efforts that allowed them to collaborate with the individuals experiencing the social injustice. The opportunities were unique and rare and only possible due to the relationships SOL Education has with the members of its community. In addition to the professional growth that occurred during the educational and service learning components of the trip, the students grew personally through their interactions with the locals. Living with host families within a community was the most rewarding experience! The personal attention, love, and respect provided to us had a profound effect on all involved and forged, what will become, lifelong friendships! " View Less
