Volunteer Galapagos, I am very enriched by my experience. The two home stays and 3 volunteer sites opened up Ecuadorean culture in a diverse, and intriguing way. In Quito, the daycare workers showed so much skill and kindness to underprivileged kids.
Testimonial Volunteer Peru Cusco, is the first place I have visited outside of my home country, the United States, and I could not have asked for a better experience. I go to college only about an hour and a half away from my home, so I am accustomed to seeing my family often.
Volunteer Review, My experience volunteering was extremely positive and I had a wonderful time at the children’s hospital. The staff I met were friendly and willing to help.
Volunteer Honduras, This mission has been a life changer for me. I would come back again in a month or two if I could. It was eye-opening to me to see how others lived and supported themselves compared to the luxuries we take for granted in the United States.
Volunteer Peru, My going away party at the orphanage was so lovely. The girls prepared a big poster with me and some made small gifts for me. I brought a cake, cookies, chips and sodas. The leader of the program did a little speech and then some of the girls talked.
Volunteer India Overall, the trip was very enjoyable, definitely one of the most enjoyable trips to India I’ve ever been on. I got to meet a lot of new people that I would never have met had I traveled just for sightseeing, Continue reading Volunteer India Jaipur Testimonial Ananth Karanam Pre Medical Student Program
Volunteer in Chile Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time here in Chile. It was an eye-opener for me to see a new culture, a new language, and a new way of life. I learned so much in my three weeks here and wish I could have stayed longer. My Spanish has vastly improved and I have learned things about teaching children that I never realized would be needed.
Volunteer Trips, I think the ABV USA support staff was as good as it could be. Every email I sent I received a response within minutes & that made me feel like I made the right choice in volunteer organizations. The volunteer guide was great also as it gave me everything I needed to know prior to coming here.
Volunteering in Costa Rica Great experience! We went to a dental clinic, a homeless shelter, a special needs home and an area where we saw a ton of kids that needed dental exams. (Also in a relatively low socioeconomic area) Also did dental checkups at a school.
Volunteer Guatemala: After my first full day in Xela I knew I was going to love my time here; in Spanish class, in the after school program, and in my homestay. The local people are friendly and if you have an open mind and like the unexpectedness that is Central America, you too will love it here.
Volunteer Peru ABV prior to traveling to Cusco was great. They sent me emails regarded tasks that I still needed to complete as well as an in depth guide of tips for traveling to Cusco. All of my emails were answered promptly and when I missed my connection flight to Cusco, someone was available by phone 24/7 to let the ABV coordinator know as soon as possible.
Volunteer Honduras I spent time in the clinics but most of my time was spent observing and participating in surgeries and the social security hospital. I was there for almost 3 weeks gaining a rapport with the doctors and surgeons. I learned quite a bit from the surgeons. I met two friends from Australia who were here for the first few days of my stay, then I had nearly 2 weeks of myself being the only volunteer here. Later 6 pre med student volunteers came also from the great state of Texas, followed by 1 pre PA student volunteer from Florida.
