Fantastic volunteer abroad program!

Traveling abroad was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and completely changed how I view the world. I volunteered with an organization called International Student Volunteers during summer 2011 and had an absolutely amazing experience. We worked on wetland rehabilitation and river restoration projects across New South Wales, Australia and made a difference in the communities we visited. I learned all about conservation and responsible tourism, while meeting new people and making great friends in the process. After the volunteer project, we spent two weeks travelling down the coast of Australia. I had the time of my life and spent time snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, surfing at Byron Bay and rappelling in the Blue Mountains. I was even able to spend an additional week in Fiji before heading home, which was yet another incredible experience. ISV offers trips to a variety of locations, but in my opinion the ISV experience is a great way to see the best of what a destination has to offer while giving something back in return. If you want to know more about my experience email me at cgillespie13@gmail.com or visit the ISV website at http://www.isvolunteers.org/ for more information!
