Review for Galapagos Ice Organization Immerse Connect Evolve, Forest Park, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I spent a month on the Galapagos, working for Galapagos ICE on a team project for my MBA studies. It was an amazing experience as I was able to contribute to the change the organization is going through right now (from a smaller, start up organization to a professional not-for-profit). During our stay, Emily energized all of us with her drive and charisma. Thanks to her enthusiasm I got in touch with the different aspects of the society on the Galapagos (education, health projects, etc).
It was an unforgettable experience

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my aerobics classes that Galapagos ICE organized in order to improve the well being of the locals.....and several women enthusiastically attended the classes every day!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
