My Favorite Memory: stepping through the front gates and immediately feeling like I’d just stepped into a place that felt like home.
I was surprised… of the type of work I did every day
The most difficult thing I experienced was….trying to match the energy level of all the kids. It made me feel old. almost.
My best received lesson…showing the kids that having more material objects never mean being happier
Tip for future volunteers… (Clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
Caye Caulker is great for catching sun.
However a much richer experience will be gained if you embrace fully the culture and country and dive head first into it.
Personal Paragraph (Testimonial):
I have had so many amazing experiences just due to the fact that I talked to every person and was open to every person I met.
How would you rate your experience working with the ABV staff, both in the USA, and in-country?
Great. I was vastly unprepared for a last minute travel decision, but through the efforts of ABV I was able to make this trip a reality. I am
forever in their debt.
How would you describe your accommodation ( ie: host family, on-site, shared housing etc)
Great, I loved that I had plenty of personal space but was still living basically with the children.
Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers?
