API Gives Back Project

API is committed to finding opportunities for its students to contribute to the communities in which they are living and learning abroad.

The API Gives Back Project may be an ongoing volunteer opportunity or a one-day commitment. Projects are often dedicated to supporting those in need or promoting environmental sustainability.

API students in other sites have painted local orphanages, organized theatrical events for seniors and children, and donated their time to support community organizations providing services to disabled children and adults.
