What do our past volunteers say?

“Me and 2 of my friends went to Costa Rica for 1 week and we absolutely loved it! We lived with a great host family that was very funny and very nice to us, not to mention the food was amazing. Personally, I would recommend this trip to everyone but I feel like if you go with a friend or two it makes things much better. Overall great experience!” - Jasjap, High School Volunteer in Costa Rica


“My experience in Arusha has been awesome. I have enjoyed a lot with all the volunteers, staff, and local people. I will always recommend this healthcare program. Also, the extra activities during the weekend were amazing, and the location was very good. The work at the hospital was wonderful because we could learn a lot and also do many kinds of different things. In Arusha, I met a lot of people and also made some incredible plans: with some friends, we did a Spanish omelet at a local Tanzanite home! Everything has been perfect. I wish I could come back because it has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my whole life.” - Christina, High School Medical Volunteer in Tanzania
