Volunteer Costa Rica: I was lucky enough to volunteer at a hospital where I would help care for the babies or kids whose parents could not always be with them. There are not enough nurses to care for all of the kids and the parents need to eat or sleep at some point and that is where the rest of the volunteers and I come in. We would help take care of the children.
Volunteer Nepal: My favorite part of this trip was getting to know the workers in the hospital as well as others in the community. Every person we met added something more to our trip. For example we had a very helpful language immersion class and our teacher brought us to her aunt’s house who had three cows all of which they let us name which I thoughts was pretty cool
Volunteer Abroad Peru: I really really loved my time in Cusco. The people I met through traveling, and other volunteers were absolutely amazing. I always had something to do in town and the time flew by. Volunteering in Peru has taught me so much about different cultures, mentality, values, and way of life.
I had a great experience with ABV and I would love to come back and do it all over again. Working in the retirement home here opened my eyes and made me feel really grateful. I will never forget the other ABV volunteers that I have met here, and I will take the lessons I learned about other people and cultures to heart.
Volunteering Honduras: My favorite memory was when they took us to a public school with an accompanying dentist. We would go to every classroom, she would teach the little children how to brush using a model and how to floss. Then we would hand out educational brochures and toothbrush packages to every kid.

Volunteering Nepal at the Monastery was a beautiful experience. I had never taught before but after a while if felt very natural. This is something I think everyone will benefit from it given the chance. Overall experience at the monastery was great.
Volunteer Peru: My experience in Cusco was amazing. My host mom was like my second mom, and since I was living with other ABV volunteers they became my family. We were all one happy little family. The volunteers turned into my sisters, and were there for me no matter what.
Volunteer Belize: This trip seemed too long when I arrived at first, but after socializing with kids and taking occasional breaks, the three weeks I spent here in Belize went by quite fast. The staff is great and the people in general are extremely open and welcoming.

Volunteer Peru: Coming to Peru was possibly the best experience of my life, it completely changed my outlook on life. After coming on this trip I would love to do something like it again. I loved my volunteering, the girls were so cute and amazing and hard to leave.
Volunteer Peru: After my time volunteering at different places in Peru, I can say it was an experience worth having. It definitely opened my mind and perspective on things in my life. I have come to realize how much I should be thankful for everything I have in my life. This experience also taught me how to be more responsible and aware of my surroundings.
Volunteer Honduras: The program itself was very hands on, we had our own patients every day and provided varying treatments, including fillings, extractions and cleanings. The dentists were very helpful and accommodating in the clinic.
