Volunteering with IVHQ

Volunteering with IVHQ was by far the most amazing experience. I spent four weeks in Malaysia teaching children English. Before my trip I was just full of nerves and excitement, but the IVHQ team helped me also feel very prepared. While I was there they helped me with any problems I had along the way as well. You can tell they really care about their volunteers and their needs. Their programs are interactive, fun and very affordable! I've already recommended IVHQ to a bunch of my friends and I can't wait to volunteer with them again in the future!

What would you improve about this program?
Better communication with the volunteer placements to help prepare the volunteers as best they can!
