- we've followed the best practices articulated by NAFSA: The Association of International Educators,
- we've been rigorous in our review of sites, potential homestay families, and service partners,
- we've stayed up to date with State Department and local news media whenever there are concerns in an area, and,
- most importantly, because we hire, work with, and trust our very competent and committed local site coordinators.
Amizade is very thankful for the competent and committed people with whom we work around the world, and the role they have played in ensuring volunteer and student safety, consistently, for 15 years.
