Hear from our alumni about their Summer Work Adventure

Alysa F. from Oregon

Alysa F. from Oregon

My time was not without its struggles. Several thighs in my personal and family life were really challenging at the time. However I experienced such kindness and empathy from AdventureEXP, my managers and coworkers. Having that support made it much easier. The location was beautiful and I was able to jump in and get to work right away. With the low cost of living and meals provided, I saved enough money to take the holidays off with my family and go to Europe for a few months afterwards. AdventureEXP took a lot of the guess-work out of it and made me feel supported to take on the new adventure! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get their toes wet and travel somewhere new.

In my program I gained experience working with management, speaking up for myself, and working with high-priority clientele. I was drawn to the location by the national monuments, museums, and cultural heritage sites that surround the area. Ultimately, the most meaningful parts of my experience were the people I met and the adventures I went on. I would definitely recommend it to a friend!
