Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As I reflect on the past 12 days, I cannot say anything but positive things. I am so thankful for all that Vida has brought me. I have learned so much more than I expected over the past year. To start, the Vida staff is incredible. The doctors promoted such a positive learning environment and confirmed my passion to work in healthcare. The interpreters were so open and knowledgeable which made the clinic days so fun. Also, the team leaders were fantastic - everything was so organized and created an upbeat and positive experience through the duration of the trip. Their vibrant energy was truly contagious.

Aside from my passion of healthcare, Vida has made me realize my passion for service. It sparked something huge for me and I cannot stop here. This program has completely changed my perspective on the idea of service to others. A little goes a very long way. I cannot wait to see where this takes me and share this with others.

Vida provides so much for its volunteers. This is a very unique volunteer opportunity that not only allows students to learn from doctors and serve communities, but also to experience another culture. Vida brings volunteers out of their comfort zone and encourages adventure. It creates lifelong friendships and memories. Both of the Vida trips I have been on left my heart so full and for that I am forever grateful.
