Our internship program includes safe and secure housing in the cost of the program fee. Housing types and amenities will vary by location. Participants in Florence will have a shared, furnished apartment or they will have a single bedroom with a local host family.

Internship participants should expect the accommodation to be centrally located and easily accessible to public transportation. Each participant’s commute will vary, as internship placements are located in different areas in each location. Average commute times range from 30 minutes up to an hour. Housing placements may be mixed gender (by apartment, not by bedroom). Participants will receive their confirmed housing assignment approximately three weeks prior to departure.
