Trip Participant - Auco Mai

"In January 2019 I went on an Agricultural learning adventure organized by Via International. We were taken to interesting indigenous community farms, private small scale farms, large scale commercial farms, and educational institutions to learn about how and what they grow. I was particularly fascinated with the food forests, how a small scale grower created a food forest on very steep land and make it sustainable and productive on minimal work. This allowed me to think about the potential for American based growers and how something like this would work well in our country. Plus, we got to see and taste the bio-diversity of so many different varieties of fruits that we normally don't get to see as end consumers, this was really exciting. I would highly recommend Via International for specialty education tours." 


University of Colorado Boulder - Karey Sabol, Director of International Programs

“Via International is an excellent partner in engaging students in grassroots community development. During our recent service-learning trip to Bolivia, they proved responsive to our needs and adept at working with community partners and navigating local realities. The students came away with a remarkable understanding of local issues and global interconnectedness.” 



Loyola University Maryland - Andrea Goicochea, Assistant Director International Immersions


I highly recommend Via International as a great host agency for meaningful immersion programs, both domestic and international. They are rooted in the community with years of experience and relationships, organized and offer great educational input for the participants. They have everything you need for a comprehensive experience.”
