Company founders Esteban Lardone & Brent Hunter said, "When we started SOL our mission was very simple; to treat our students the way we wanted to be treated when we studied abroad. Ten years later, our mission has not changed. SOL enriches the lives of students who want to explore cultures, learn more about themselves and open their hearts and minds to completely new experiences. We would like to thank all of our onsite directors who work night and day for our students and our Austin headquarters team. We would also like to thank our affiliate and partner universities. Most of all, we would like to thank each and every student that has decided to take a leap and explore the world through our programs."
SOL believes in sustainability. More specifically, we believe we have to create and maintain sustainable relationships. Every host family or individual that we work with in our programs is part of a bigger picture, and we want to ensure a long-lasting relationship that not only improves the participant´s experience, but also the lives of everyone we work with. As part of this vision of sustainability SOL gets our students and staff involved in service learning and volunteer opportunities, working with organizations that promote social welfare and environmental stewardship. We´ve come a long way since 2005 but we are proud that we´ve never lost sight of the mantra that drives us.
Our global family now includes over 30 directors in all four of our locations and continues to consistently provide our students the best possible study abroad experience.
