WHAT DO WE WANT IN THIS SPACE?
Pacia Life Portugal can offer international opportunities most young adults can only dream of, and be incredibly beneficial for strengthing your resume. One of the things we see in the job hunting world is when two people look the same on paper that the one who looks more “interesting” due to other resume building life experiences will get the job. With the highly competitive college admissions and job market, international experiences combined with education, internship and certifications can give candidates the edge they need.
Pacia Life visionaries started actively using international cultural immersion, service and exploration trips with the intention of personal growth in 2009. “The personal growth that our young adults make through experiencing global citizenship, other cultures, becoming a contributor instead of just a receiver, seeing that the world is a much bigger place than just our home! International vacations are good, but living in another country for a period of time is life-altering,” says Randy Oakley, President of the board of directors for Pacia Life.

“Living in Nepal with the Buddist Monks was the most powerful experience of my life”
“It was an awakening. I am thankful every day that I spent three months in Nepa, a month in South Africa, and two months in Peru. I was already admitted into college but these experiences made me come back and go a whole different direction with a new college and a different choice of major.
My life has been so enriched by the experience, and so many doors are opened everywhere I go simply by the change in perspective these international service experiences has given me. My friends who haven’t taken a gap year look around and see only college, classes, internships, resumes… I look around and see the entire world waiting for me.”
“Heyya! I go by Dave. My travels to the mountain ranches of Argentina and working the land in New Zealand taught me how fulfilling it is to sweat into another country’s soil. To let go of a piece of yourself that you thought was you, and gain some truth. Plus all the delicious goats and tasty rabbits to be to be eaten. Yum. I highly recommend finding your own place of goat and goodness through traveling and gap years.”
