International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)

My volunteer trip to Croatia went perfectly well; the organizers were incredibly kind and through this experience, I was able to meet some amazing people, with whom I made some very strong friendships.
However, I was only in Croatia for one week and I think it should be stated on the website that one week is not enough for the marine conservation program. Indeed, since I was not at all qualified in diving, teaching me all the basics took the whole week and I had very little opportunity to pick up trash on the ocean floor.
Nevertheless, I still insist that it was an extraordinary experience and one that I will remember for the rest of my life!

I volunteered on the animal care programme where I was in a no kill animal shelter for 2 weeks, helping to look after the dogs and cats. My experience was nothing but positive and I had the time of my life, I would do it all over again if I could! There was a perfect balance between volunteering and having free time in the afternoons and evenings, and on the weekends.
The programme fee was very affordable and was worth it for the standard of the accommodation and food provided. The staff at the hostel were very lovely and welcoming.
The support prior to my programme was outstanding where my programme manager (Charlotte Very) was able to answer any questions I had in great detail, despite her being located at the headquarters in New Zealand and myself living in the UK.
I cannot recommend IVHQ and the programme itself enough - it was amazing!

I really enjoyed my volunteer experience in Croatia. I worked in the Creative Technologies position, and I got to work with the only no-kill animal shelter in the area. I was able to combine both my passion for marketing and video making with my passion for animal care! On top of my wonderful placement, the town of Split was wonderful. The weather, the people, the food-- everything was perfect! If you get the chance, definitely do this program.
