Like everything cool, our roots go back to the 90s. Sheree Mitchell, M.A. (IGS' founder), studied Spanish and lived with local families in Costa Rica during many summers.   

She not only learned a new language and culture, but she also learned to view the world through a different lens. Sheree quickly became addicted to this new approach to travel which led her to seek more experience-based opportunities around the world.  

During graduate school, Sheree finally got her first opportunity to design language and cultural immersion programs for other students. And, as they say, the rest is history!
