GALAPAGOS ICE ORGANIZATION IMMERSE CONNECT EVOLVE
September 25, 2011
My experience with Galapagos Ice was amazing. This is the most successful immersion program that I have worked with. Galapagos ICE is the only organization on the islands that deals solely with the people in the community. Their projects are unique and crucial to the growing community. I worked on the health campaign, and was able to represent the organization during clinic hours and the extraordinary Saturday Market services. The organization offers free exercise classes, nutrition clinic hours, and runs some important tests(blood sugar, BMI during Market days); these are all free of charge, and mostly uses volunteer manpower. I am a Nutrition Science student, and was able to tailor a portion of my project to focus on my area of study and interest. Everyday brought to light a different opportunity to help the organization grow, and to connect with the local population. It was absolutely thrilling to have the opportunity to work with Galapagos ICE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would require that volunteers send a project proposal no less than one month before arriving to the islands. The project should be directly in line with the work done by the previous volunteers that have participated on the same campaign.
