What happens if I feel unsafe or get lost somewhere?

Before you go abroad, you'll get oriented to your program and be given information on important mobile numbers, like that of your site director and our 24/7 emergency line staffed in the U.S. When you arrive on-site, you'll get another orientation. Many of our programs have group chats with the onsite cohort so you can always connect with the group. Of course, getting a little turned around is a normal part of exploring somewhere new. Just remember to take a breath. Consider asking for help from a local person, even if there's a language barrier.
