I recently spent 5 weeks in Leon, Nicaragua. The original public health-related volunteer work that I had signed up for fell through. Luckily I stumbled upon La Isla Foundation, where I was warmly greeted the minute I walked in the door. I ended up working as a volunteer with their Public Health team for a month, which ended up being one of the highlights of my time in Nicaragua. The people I worked with at La Isla were fun, smart, and dedicated, and I gained valuable insight into the public health field. I also took part in various of their tours, took Spanish lessons at the foundation, and lived in their dormitory for my last week in Leon- All were very positive experiences!
