I've recently returned from my two week under 18s volunteer and adventure program in Costa Rica. It was a fantastic experience where I was able to make so many new friends, whilst also feeling like we made a really positive impact on the El Cocal community. I loved the activities in adventure week, particularly the white water rafting. However, my favourite week was definitely community week as everyone was so welcoming and we were able to feel a great sense of accomplishment. The support from GVI was amazing throughout and the staff were really fun to volunteer with. I certainly hope to be involved with GVI in the future!
