ESA is a leading customized programs provider in Europe. We facilitate high impact cultural learning programs and our work is guided by our values of linguistic and cultural diversity, respect for people and the environment, an appreciation for Arts and Culture, community engagement, and inclusion.

ESA combines intercultural learning, academic inquiry and curricular goals with our expert on-site knowledge and logistic resources to create unique, customized programs in Europe. Since 2008, we’ve supported high-quality customized programs for colleges and universities from around the world.

ESA’s environmental commitments include offsetting, energy-efficiency, working with providers with a sustainability certificate whenever possible.

“At ESA we love to travel but we also know it is one of the major contributors to climate change and we are committed to reducing our impact. We reduce the carbon footprint of our programs by offsetting the airfare and group ground transportation. With this initiative, ESA is offsetting 95% of the carbon emissions of the flights and ground transfers of the programs we operate and we ask the program participants to cover the remaining 5% during their program.  We chose because of its transparency and its projects.” – Lynn Wallace, Founder and CEO
