Green Life Volunteers

This was the first volunteering project I worked on overseas and Green life volunteers proved to be a good choice. On arrival in Puerto Jimenez, I was met off the bus by Janina early in the morning. I had already been provided with a list of items I should bring with me to Costa Rica but should I have forgotten any items, Janina was there to show me where in town I could find things like medicines, footwear or banking services. After settling in with a host family and some orientation lessons about the local area, I met up with the project lead to discuss further the schedule for the coming weeks and discuss any concerns I may have. The activity schedule was clear and accurately reflected the program which had interested me on the Green Life Volunteers website. Working on the bird conservation project, some of my duties included social media support, bird surveys and plant nursery work. The diversity of avian species on the Osa peninsula is quite unique and was by far the richest in Costa Rica. Throughout my stay in Costa Rica, Green Life Volunteers were always providing support to enable the success of the project and to ensure a good work life balance where I could enjoy the many activities available on the Osa peninsula like surfing, fishing, kayaking and hiking in the Corcovado National Park. Costa Rica proved to be a safe destination with a friendly and helpful community who want to share in their ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle and I would recommend Green Life Volunteers to anyone who wishes to help protect the unique ecosystem of the Osa peninsula.

Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

My daughter, Nicole 16 at the time, sat my husband and I down to ask to go to Ghana Africa. We thought she was crazy! We immediately said no and then realized she was serious so we did our research into Global Leadership Adventures and Accra where she would be staying and it was very safe. We left her at the airport and waited 3 weeks to see her again. She came back a new person she had more appreciation and she was so happy. She raved about her trip and the children and the Staff and everything about it. So as a review I will highly suggest the trip all aspects were safe and my daughter got so much out of the experience that she will carry along with her throughout he whole life. As well she has experiences many kids her age do not have in which she can put on applications and apply to her work in the future because of the new aspect she has gained thanks to Global Leadership Adventures! As a parent I highly suggest this program for high school kids!

Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

My daughter traveled to Thailand this past summer with Global Leadership Adventures and absolutely loved it! This was a great experience for her because she learned a lot about independence and leadership while having fun in a safe environment. I was apprehensive to let my daughter go away for 2 weeks across the world but after talking with GLA alumni and staff I was reassured that this was a good, safe decision. This experience is one that can not be gained anywhere else and I would recommend that anyone interested takes the leap and do it!
