Review for Conservation Volunteers International Program, Inc., Orinda, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I originally became involved with this organization by participating as a volunteer on a trip to Machu Picchu in April of 2009. It was a life changing event for me and in October of 2010 was honored to become a member of the Board. There is such a feeling of pride and satisfaction when you can look at a photo of Machu Picchu and tell others that during your visit there you worked on trails, cleaned terraces and removed lichen and moss from the bricks. It will be a memory that you cherish forever! I have also participated as a volunteer in a second trip to Machu Picchu and two trips to Yosemite. Being a part of a group of volunteers who feel strongly about giving back and work so hard to make a difference is very special.
