My volunteer experience with SchoolBOX had a significant impact on me and my future direction and choices. In just 10 days, I became inspired by the friendly attitudes of the people and the enthusiastic reactions of the children from the school. Our routine consisted of physical labour tasks, such as moving cement, tying rebar, or painting. But, the most exciting part of the day was recess, when the children would run out to meet us excitedly and teach us their favourite games- skipping, soccer, clapping, and singing. The language barrier was not important, the only requirement being a high energy level and a playful spirit! By choosing this volunteer trip, you support a fantastic grassroots organization that is making a real, lasting difference in Nicaragua.
