Having the opportunity to volunteer in the Marshall Islands through WorldTeach was an amazing experience that I would recommend to any graduate who wants to give back. It was an amazing experience! Getting to be immersed in the Marshallese culture was an enriching and rewarding experience. The Marshallese are some of the most welcoming and friendly people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Walking around the island you are invited into the community members homes to share meals and talk. You very quickly are seen as a member of the community and become involved with events from feasts to sporting competitions that are frequently held. It truly is an experience of a life time to visit, volunteer and become a member of a community that most people in the world don't know about let alone will ever have the opportunity to visit.
