Review for A Broader View Volunteers Corp, Elkins Park, PA, USA
A Broader View was a wonderful experience for us in all ways. Our 17 year old daughter graduated early from high school with the hope of doing something different during a "Gap Year" before going off to college. In researching Gap Year possibilities we found she was limited because of her age. A Broader View accepted volunteers under 18 for some of their destinations and our daughter, who had been taking Spanish since the 1st grade, decided to go to Peru.
As a parent, i was impressed with the level of communication and responsiveness to my concerns in having our daughter go to Peru for approximately 3 months. Sarah was always available and willing to answer my questions. From the outset, i was impressed with ABV and their goal of trying to make volunteering more accessible, both financially and in trying to accommodate the volunteers' schedule. Many of the "volunteer" programs we looked at for our daughter were cost prohibitive and had many time constraints. ABV made it possible for her to experience a different culture and, at the same time, volunteer in ways that she never would have otherwise.
We can't say enough good about A Broader View and wouldn't hesitate to use them again if the opportunity to volunteer abroad presented itself again.
