My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA
I had such an amazing experience on my VIDA trip and made memories I will never forget! I had an amazing time with an awesome group of people. The doctors we worked with were very friendly and really want you to learn and grow. I learned a lot about certain diagnoses thanks to the help of the doctors. I still keep in contact with one of the doctors that was on our trip to this day and she continues to be a great mentor! I've never been to a spanish-speaking country before and loved every minute of it. I came into the program knowing very little Spanish but I learned a lot in the two weeks I was in Guatemala, especially during my home stay (with the most friendly family!). I felt extremely safe every minute of the trip, which was something my parents were concerned about prior to the trip. VIDA does live up to its mission statement and it's beautiful to see the positive impact you as a volunteer make on the communities you serve. Overall, it was an amazing experience that I would love to do again. Thanks so much VIDA!
