GALAPAGOS ICE ORGANIZATION IMMERSE CONNECT EVOLVE
January 2, 2011
I was involved with Galapagos ICE a couple of summers ago when I decided to take the summer off to get involved in a volunteer project. I had come across the website online and contacted Emily to see if she had any projects that I could make a contribution to. Emily was more than helpful in placing me in an environment I was comfortable working in and in finding living quarters that I would be calling home for the next three months. My experience in the islands far exceeded what I set out to do. I had the opportunity to really commit myself to working in the hospital administering basic first aid all while having the chance to perfect my Spanish. I met locals and made friends that I will keep for a long time. The organization really helped me with any concerns that I had throughout my stay. I will always remember the time I spent in the Galapagos and recommend this organization to anyone interested in getting involved in volunteerism.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to connect volunteers working in similar settings to better coordinate their efforts towards a common goal.
