What will my student be provided with while on their program?

American Councils students are provided with a pre‐departure orientation (PDO), travel to/from the U.S. and their host community, post‐arrival orientation, mid‐year orientation, and re‐entry workshop. Each student also receives a monthly stipend ($125), health insurance, funding for school‐related expenses ($300), and is supported by an American Councils Local Coordinator in or near the host family’s community. Funding is provided to the local coordinator for organizing enrichment activities.
