Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Santiago, the capital and the largest city in Chile, was founded in 1541. It is home to over a third of Chileans and is the commercial and political center of Chile. With a vast public transportation system, a growing economy, top universities, it is one of South America's most modern, safe, and thriving cities.
Santiago offers a diverse range of cultural attractions, including eclectic neighborhoods, museums, shopping, restaurants, and cafes. European influences can be seen in the neoclassical architecture, city parks, and cuisine. The Museo de Historia National, Museo National de Bellas Artes, Cerro de San Cristobal, and barrio Bella Vista are just a few of the sights to see.
Centrally located in Chile, Santiago makes a great starting point for visiting other parts of Chile. On the weekends, visitors might find themselves hiking in Patagonia, walking beautiful coastal beach areas, skiing in the Andes, or touring world-class vineyards in Mendoza. It is no wonder that so many people wish to intern abroad or participate in community service programs during their gap year in Santiago!
“My Resident Director was fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure that I was able to explore Santiago and get to know the city!"
API students in Santiago have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including volunteering with the local immigrant community and other underserved populations, working with senior citizens, and community service opportunities with local non-profits.
