  • Journey to Africa

    When I began to tell others that I was going to South Africa for volunteer work, the typical reaction was, ‘Be careful. It is a very dangerous place’. This led me to have some misgivings about my choice of OE. Yet, now I can safely say these fears were completely unfounded. My journey to South Africa was unforgettable with experiences that will be hard to match. The journey was …

    I'm so excieted that I was confirmed to go to Costa Rica on July 19th this summer!!!! I have always wanted to go volunteering in a country where really needs help for their people. I had a chance to volunteer in Kenya before, but the schedule did not fit mine, so I couldnt go there. I'm an international student in Canada myself, I came here all alone when I was 16 years old …

    I was always someone who had a holiday in the works – somewhere I was planning to go to in the not too distant future, like a girl’s trip to Bali or a weekend away down south. So when a representative from International Student Volunteers (ISV) came into my accounting lecture at uni last February to talk about the program, I was immediately interested. I’d already heard a little about …

  • Life Changed in Costa Rica


    by: SarahISU

    created on: Jan 04, 2013 | Illinois, United States

    In June 2012 I went to Costa Rica for 5 weeks with International Student Volunteers. I decided to travel with ISV because I didn't want to just see the sights, I didn't want to just be a tourist. I wanted to live there, volunteer in the community, learn and speak the language, all while doing more than a tourist does, not just seeing the sights but skydiving off them, walking …

    Just received my email today cofirming my trip! I leave for the Thailand conservation trip on May 23, 2013 and I am so pumped! One of my closest friends also managed to get on the same trip for community which makes it all the more exciting.  However as excitement mounts, so do my costs. The trip is costly and I'll have to shell out a solid $5000 on it; I've never …
