Yes, I recommend this program

Volunteer Trip is nothing but the best!

Overall, I think my program was very successful. Three factors that stood out were (i) in-country support; (ii) program affordability; and (iii) the volunteering experience.

With respect to in-country support, Mallory continually offered herself as a resource for any questions and concerns I had. This support made me feel very secure and confident in my decision to volunteer abroad. She responded to each email promptly and gave very great information. In Guatemala, the program director was very resourceful as well. She was very kind and available whenever I needed help.

Most volunteer programs are very expensive, but not Volunteer Trip. I think this program was very affordable, considering the services and benefits received. I loved my homestay family and all other services included with the program. Having 3 meals a day and a safe place to stay is always an important issue; having those services covered within the program fee was very nice.

Volunteering in Guatemala is an experience I will never forget. VolunteerTrip made the process for simple. Through the organization's website/links, I knew what to expect and felt confident in what I was doing.

What would you improve about this program?
A follow-up email/call from the Volunteer Trip with the volunteer once he?she has arrived to the host country; to ensure everything is in order and there are no problems.
