No, I don't recommend this program

A negative experience overall

This work itself is fantastic but the staff are unprofessional, very conservative and do not appreciate their volunteers. There is no room for individuality here. Feedback is certainly not welcome. We were all made to feel like we were stupid, couldn't do anything right, and didn't deserve to be there.
