Environmental Sustainability Programme - Puerto Rico

I couldn't recommend this volunteering programme enough! For anyone looking to make instant impacts in environmental conservation, whilst meeting amazing people, then this is the place for you. I was greeted by the amazing Estefania, she ensured that my trip went as smoothly as possible and was always there if I needed anything. A huge shoutout to Juan and Yvette, they made the experience one that I will never forget. They were so helpful, letting me get stuck in with whatever I was comfortable doing and always made sure that they were taking the time to educate us. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I highly recommend :)

IVHQ Puerto Rico

The trip was very rewarding. The project that I was assigned was clearly outlined before I arrived at the destination. I enjoyed the hostel and the local community. The environment of the location was pleasant and I was able to be immersed in their culture. The volunteering projects had a short and long-term impact on the future of the organization's mission. I had a good work-life balance and the organization I was working for was very accommodating to the volunteer's needs. I was able to explore the community and the coordinator provided excellent trips. I highly recommend IVHQ for planning and I feel comfortable in the future booking with IVHQ. The company does the heavy lifting and planning to make sure you are with the best local team to walk you through the ropes of the program. The team also goes above and beyond and cares about all the volunteers.
