Review for Global Volunteers, St. Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Fabulous! Very well organized. My safety was never a concern. Food plentiful and
Delicious. Housing wonderful. Hot showers, flush toilets, cozy comfortable bed. Our leader was absolutely responsive to any and all requests. No need went unattended.
Met the most wonderful people. Gained much more than ever expected in hospitality, friendships, meeting the needs of the community where I was invited to volunteer. I will definitely volunteer with Global Volunteers again and again. Just waiting now for Covid-19 to resolve so that I am able to go. I am looking forward to volunteering in Poland, St. Lucia, New Mexico, West Virginia, Ecuador and of course again in PERU where I left a piece of my heart. The friends I met there I am still in contact with via email and letters.
Global Volunteers is really a fantastically run organization. The country leaders are highly trained. They allow opportunities for engaging personally in the culture of the country/area of service. Volunteer assignments are rewarding beyond words. I would and have encouraged others to join a volunteer group. I went solo, met people that have gone with groups, and learned so much.....each volunteer has so many gifts that come out in expected and unexpected ways. Like Nike says- Just Do It- never a regret. One can ONLY come home changed for the better forever.
