Review

My name is Agne. I'm 26 years old and I am from Denmark. I participated working with the Children at Risk program through VAGT. My project was incredible, as I got to work with little kids (3-5 year olds), and help influence them and their future decisions. Being able to contribute to their future success and help the teachers there, who truly do need the help, felt so rewarding. This project was one of the most eye opening, incredible things I've ever done in my life.
I lived with a wonderful host family –Mama Lu- and her family. Aside from the actual volunteer work, they contributed greatly to my experience there. The staff support while in Antigua was astonishing. I got super sick while I was there(I get motion sickness easily) and they immediately called my parents and took me to the doctor and even paid for my medicine and doctors visit.
My roommates were easily one of the greatest parts of my trip. We were all near the same age, so I think that contributed to how well we got along, but they were also just incredible people with such big hearts; I feel so honored to know that they'll forever be a part of my life. I lost my wallet the very first day I was in Antigua, and my roommate Stephanie helped me pay for anything and everything the rest of the trip (I paid her back of course). There's truly no one else like the other volunteers; they're so giving, understanding, and genuinely good people
I would do it a thousand times over again if I could.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
