Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Careers at API
Study Abroad + Options
So. Many. Options,
In addition to our dedicated Intern programs, API also offers students the option to experience teach, volunteer, and intern opportunities while on a semester, academic year, or summer study abroad program. In many cases, students can earn academic credit, though some opportunities are offered without credit. Most of these opportunities are included in the cost of the program, though a few are offered for an additional fee.
In addition to our portfolio of study abroad and intern abroad programs, API also offers students the option to extend their experience abroad and complete volunteer service after their coursework ends. Volunteer add-ons can be a great way to deepen your understanding of the host culture and engage further with your host community (if you stay in your same host city), or to experience a new host country and culture with API support (if you elect to volunteer in another location).
We encourage you to consult the links below for site-specific info. For details about how to apply, speak to your API Program Manager or Coordinator. Interested students are encouraged to apply to volunteer before they go abroad to study or once on-site (at least a minimum of 12 weeks prior to their study abroad program's official end date).
