My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA
I absolutely love this organization. I started out as a volunteer in 2018 and then became a campus coordinator for a trip in 2019 since I had such an amazing experience! I went to both Costa Rica and Guatemala and loved every second. Every person on Vida's staff--the doctors, interpreters, team leaders, and communication staff made each volunteer feel safe and welcome. I had never traveled outside the US previous to this trip and I did not know anyone who going on my trip either. However after the trip, I had learned so much from being immersed in another culture and made friends from around the world. My time with Vida completely solidified my passion for becoming a future physician and really helped motivate me to continue on the journey to get me there. Vida loves each and every volunteer and every single community they come into contact with. I will never forget my time as a Vida volunteer and I hope to one day become a part of it again!
