Two sons. Two trips. Two fabulous experiences.

When my first son, Ben, told me about his plans to travel to India with a total stranger, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I was a bit hesitant to let him go. He needed the credits to graduate, so I did my research on Wisdom Study Abroad and reluctantly sent my first-born to the other side of the world. I had no idea at the time how life-changing this trip would be for him. That was 4 years ago and he still talks about it and thanks us for sending him.

So when my second son, Dan, expressed an interest in going on the same trip to India, I was writing the deposit check before he could finish speaking. He returned about 2 weeks ago and still can’t stop thanking us for sending him. Jim Hagan runs a top-notch organization. He is trustworthy, smart and knows his way around. He has transformed the way my boys see the world and their role as a global citizen. Even if you or your children don’t need the credits for school, I can’t think of a better learning experience.
