How did you get involved in the volunteer industry?

Happy volunteers in Ecuador

Elizabeth: I spent over two year working in the Galapagos Island and was lucky enough to see the most unique place on the planet and I realized that we all need to do our part to help maintain these islands. First, I looked for an organization such as Lead adventures that support protecting the environment and providing benefits to the local communities.

What makes Lead Adventures unique?

Elizabeth: Our administrative costs are much lower than agencies based in Europe or the USA. This enables us to offer lower prices for our volunteer programs compared to other international volunteer agencies.

What does the future hold for Lead Adventures?

Elizabeth: Try to keep creating and offering unique experience that combine traditional travel with volunteer touring . We believe is the ideal way to get to know and understand the country.
