Offer program participants to maintain online profiles on your website to keep track of their experiences (i.e. blog) and reflect on what they learned every few days. If I had something like that and was encouraged to journal, I would be able to review my entries and provide more detailed examples of my favorite parts of the trip.

I went during the Non-peek season. At one point, I was the only volunteer in the home. I went during the month of July. I would suggest researching peek times so that you will be able to socialize with other volunteers. On the other hand, I made many local friends and had an amazing time with them.

I would have liked to been given a more formal orientation session about the little details of living in a new place: how and when to use electricity, who to call in case of an emergency, the locations of the embassies, and other things like that.
