Questions & Answers
SandraAge: 31-50FemaleParis, FranceOtherI will definitely do it again!01/12/2015How could this program be improved?
As much as possible information about the project are requiered to prepare yourself the best way you can. What age the children have, how is their knowledge, what kind of material is given.
KevinAge: 25-30MaleLittle Falls, NJNew York UniversityIncredible Experience with UBELONG11/21/2014How could this program be improved?
Honestly, for the specific role that UBELONG played in my experience, there isn't anything I would need to change. For a new experience like this the most important things to me were communication and diversity of programs, and UBELONG met or exceeded my expectations in both fields (and others...) time and again.
MarianaAge: 19-24FemaleBraga- PortugalOtherVietnam for real10/16/2014How could this program be improved?
I think that it could be better for the association and for further volunteers, if the program was a little bite cheaper. It would also be important if the organization is closest to the offices of each country, so they can keep in touch and to know what is going on, every day.
FabianAge: 25-30MaleLas Cruces, New MexicoNew Mexico State UniversityFriendship is the greatest gift in the world10/09/2014How could this program be improved?
I don't think I would change anything its a volunteer organization and I didn't expect to get treated like a 5 star hotel. One thing I did dislike is the fake people who just go over to get there certificate.
RyanAge: 19-24MaleCambridge, MassachusettsHarvard UniversityUBELONG - Ho Chi Minh City - Review01/28/2014How could this program be improved?
If anything, I would have appreciated the opportunity to speak with someone who had went on the HCMC trip previously. Raul, my mentor, did perfectly fine in answering all my questions and concerns, but I still would have liked to speak with someone who had been on the trip before.

Meals in Vietnam are not as big as in North America. The food was delicious but especially for breakfast I sometimes had to do a mid-morning snack to carry me to lunch. It is also a diet very rich in carbs, which for me took some getting used to.
