“Envoys was at the top of their game from start to finish. What initially interested me was their focus on curriculum during pre-departure meetings and the program itself. Envoys cares deeply about the experience of the participants and faculty. [They] constantly ask for constructive criticism and make changes when necessary.”— Joe Vogel , Executive Director, Global Education Benchmark Group

Thank you so much for this unforgettable and transformational experience.”— Altana , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
