Good summer Program
Don't worry, I tend to make a big deal out of everything.
Keep on keeping on.
You can also consider India for summer Program. If you wish, please visit at http://www.volunteersindia.org/volunteer-program-summer.asp
They have placements all over the world in work camps doing interesting things. You can teach, do painting, go on a culture trip, all kinds of things, and all with other european and American youth.
I've done a few projects and they deliver what they promise, more or less.
If you want variety, sign up for a series of 2 week work campts at about 250 a week not including transport, but all food and housing is usually provided by the host.
Its an interesting idea to do three different two week camps, and then sign up for an intermediate type camp if they're avalailable. Some are very interesting.
Anyways, it works out to 500 a month, and that should be in your budget, no? Also, the intermediate term camps often only charge a one time fee for the entire period.
Go alone. Hooking up is a major preoccupation of workcamp volunteers no, not joking. That's why they're usually co-ed by rules. Still, some camps do teach valuable skills if you choose correctly.
Directly enrolling in just a couple classes is also a good option. Check out University of Ghana, Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology in Kakamega Kenya, University of Cape Coast, etc.
Also you could do an internship instead which most colleges give credit for. Ikando (www.ikando.org) based in Africa offers really reasonably priced programs ranging from weeks to months and they are all internships or just volunteer programs focusing on everything from health and sanitation, to agriculture, to just working in orphanages. Try STAESA www.staesa.org which also does internships or volunteer projects for really cheap.
Most of my suggestions are in Africa, so not sure if that's where you are looking.
