Feedback Parker Riddle Volunteer in belize

My Favorite Memory:
When I first arrived, one of the kids just came up to me and gave me a hug.

I was surprised that….
How little Creole I could understand.

The most difficult thing I experienced was…..
Dealing with all of the mosquitoes.

My best received lesson…..
Learning to divide my attention with all of the kids.

Tip for future volunteers…..   
I would bring more than $300. If you plan on going on a little trip. Also for clothing, prepare for really hot weather.

Personal paragraph (Testimonial):
The kids here are great and very well mannered, they all have amazing personalities and I loved getting to know them.

How would you rate your experience working with the ABV staff, both in the USA and in country?
I would say that ABV is very great and straight- forward when they contacted me. They were a lot more active with me in the US. Once I got here, they sent email which was nice.

How would you describe your accommodation
I like that the volunteers all had one dorm type place to share. I feel like it made it easier to connect with them.

Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers?
