Projects Abroad

My trip to Tanzania with Projects Abroad was the most valuable thing I've done in my life! The support with this program is amazing. One of the best parts is that they had an office on the ground that was totally accessible to everyone in Tanzania involved with their program. You can see Projects Abroad really does great things for the community and gives back. Whenever we needed extra plants for orphanages or decided we wanted to give food to students as a gift they supplied it all happily. I always felt accounted for and listened to in this program, and the itinerary had a broad range of activities for us so I feel like I really got to know everything there was to know about my country. One of our group leaders was born and raised in Tanzania, and that was such a valuable thing because we got to learn about his country from an insider perspective. Projects Abroad was very well organized but also let us adjust our day to day based on what the group wanted/needed. I recommend this to anyone looking to volunteer around the world, and I personally can't wait to go on another Projects Abroad Trip!

Forum Nexus

Being a travel lover, Forum-Nexus was a wonderful experience for me. As a Travel Photographer Student, this was an amazing opportunity to capture the beauty of Europe with my camera lens! imagine having a classroom and attending lectures which moves from one city to another throughout a month. it consists of highly co-operative faculty and staff members. The different flavors of Europe , be it food, weather, landscape, people, culture, historical monuments , you just name it, so much to see and do in 4 weeks...I highly recommend this program to broaden your horizon and experience the magnificent part of world and it's beauty.

A Broader View Volunteers Corp

I was part of a host-family and shared an apartment with another ABV volunteer. All this was a bonus since I had my own space to write, yet when it came to family time, we were only one floor away from the warmth of a fabulous family. My host family took pride and leaving time aside to be with everyone together. Also, the host-family was very passionate with all the food they made. If you want to learn about the culture, food and traditions, please have a host-family in mind. The best part of this trip was helping all the children. I was inspired to see all the children so eager to learn and to see how passionate they were to hear what everyone had to say. Some children have to walk far, but they were there on time and eager to learn, I already miss them.

Forum Nexus

I was a part of 2015 FN program and I still constantly think about the amazing experience I had! What I really liked about Forum Nexus is that you can customize the experience to your travel preferences. There is a good variety of class offerings and because the program goes through multiple countries, you can visit a lot of different cities (or stay in one place and dig a little deeper, as I did!).

A special shout out to the staff of Forum Nexus--they work tirelessly to make sure each student has a great summer. Feedback is taken seriously and the team is very committed to making continual improvements. I highly recommend this program!!

Discover Corps

The Discover Corps trip to Guatemala was more than I could have hoped for. The guide, driver, home base, volunteer experiences, and the additional sights we visited were beyond my expectations. The food was remarkable and I felt safe, taken care of, and informed every step of the way.
