I traveled with IVHQ on my first trip to Thailand this summer. Being a young adult on the other side of the world from everyone I know and in a brand new place, I still never felt like I was alone. The support was fantastic and the program was incredible. Teaching English to the local children was a very meaningful and fun experience. When the volunteers weren't teaching English, we had the opportunity to explore temples, markets, beaches, shopping malls, and other local attractions. It's a great program for anyone who wants to experience a new culture, explore nature, and help the community. I will definitely consider volunteering with IVHQ again, as they have an incredible variety of programs all over the world for an affordable price.
