I super recommend the Detroit Adventures House! It’s the best place to do volunteer in USA. I loved be there, the hosts are great, the house are great and the city too. It’s a awesome place to improve your English and meet new friends.
Jenny and Alex thanks for everything! I hope we can brew a beer and eat a cinnamon bread soon :)

The experience was amazing and incredible! We were made very welcome, and had a great stay all the time! The hosts are people with good life, high spirits, receptive and always concerned about the guests and staffs. Detroit, contrary to what many people say, is a good city, it is rebounding again, if it is true, but we made friends who gave us many good tips! I recommend!
