Global Crossroad

Overall, it was a great experience. I stayed with a host family near a monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. Teaching English to the monk students. I really enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend it. The reception in Nepal was also great!

Projects Abroad

Volunteering in Sri Lanka with Projects Abroad was an incredible experience. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and always available to answer any questions I had. I did a two-week medicine volunteer project over the winter break of my sophomore year in college. My host family was very kind and welcoming, and provided a delicious dinner every night and plenty of filtered water for us to take with us during the day. I spent most of my time shadowing doctors at the local hospitals in Panadura, Sri Lanka. I was always with another volunteer, and it was nice to share my experiences with someone else. All of the doctors were very kind and always willing to slow down and explain a procedure to us. It was slightly intimidating to be surrounded by local medical students and residents, but everyone was excited to help us learn. We also spent a lot of time at a children’s home, teaching them about health care and preparing for the Christmas holidays. On the weekend, we took a trip to Kandy, where we went to an elephant reserve and many local markets. I learned so much about the rich culture of Sri Lanka and also about healthcare abroad. I would love to return to Sri Lanka again, and volunteering through Projects Abroad was a wonderful experience.

Askari WCP

My second visit to Askari was even more amazing than my first - and I never thought I'd be able to match the first one! Every day is a new and different experience & adventure whilst at the same time contributing to the important conservation work that the reserve is dedicated to. There is a great variety in the tasks and the animal sightings, whilst never guaranteed, are always breath taking. Katie and Ed are amazing teachers and every volunteer leaves with so much knowledge, understanding and appreciation for the South African bush - plants, insects, animals and birds. If you want to get involved, get hands on with conservation work and have the experience of a lifetime then I can't recommend Askari highly enough. I can't wait to get back for another visit :)

Discover Corps

Discover Corps trip to the Dominican Republic, was life changing! Getting to be apart of such a great program that benefits not only the people of DR, but myself as well. Our group was small and it worked out in our favor! Scott our group leader was awesome! He was so informative, easy to get along with, and overall fantastic, couldn't have ask for a better leader. The program was organized and accurate on each daily activity. 8 days full of projects that were amazing, from building a home for a family out of discarded plastic bottles, to visiting a chocolate factory.. there were many fun experiences on this trip I can't pick a specific one. Overall great program and I'm definitely going to be participating in another.
