Alternative Spring Break

I would recommend this volunteer opportunity in Belize to first-timers and students. This program is great for young adults who want to travel and give back. The staff was great and very helpful if we had any problems. The food was great there as well. We did work there at a local preschool, which was a lot of fun. We also had free time. During this time we could explore San Pedro or rest. It was the perfect balance!

Yes, I recommend
