* Host Country Program Administration
On-site administration of your program
The staff at the Center for Amazon studies make sure that you get the most out of the environment, culture, and community as you can given the regulations of SFS as an organization. While these regulations can be somewhat strict, they do allow each student to get the absolute most out of their education and engage with their environment in a holistic way. While I can't speak to some of the newer staff members, I know that everyone living and working at the center during my semester in Peru could not have been more helpful, kind, and generous. If you commit to this program and are as excited about ecology, soils, agriculture, and South American culture as everyone in my semester was, then you will have the time of your life. I know these are four months I will never regret.
