"Designed for You" Community Immersion

Since 1972, Xperitas has been highly focused on providing deep and meaningful cultural immersion. We provide cross-cultural exchange with indigenous, rural and displaced communities worldwide. Community partners invite our participants to become part of their community, assist with their projects and experience the rhythm of daily life within their culture. Students become "temporary locals" allowing Xperitas to deliver a more culturally-rich, authentic experience than typical service learning programs.
