What recent volunteers said about their IVHQ experience
I loved volunteering with IVHQ. The Greece Program was amazing. I loved exploring the various food markets in Athens and I feel extremely good because I know I did something for others.
Volunteering with IVHQ was a very fulfilling experience. You get to know places that you never imagined you would know before. You also meet new people that become great friends and who join you on an amazing trip to explore new cultures.
I can confidently say volunteering was the best decision of my life and I have already signed up for another 12 weeks in Bali with someone I met on the trip. I was a very anxious person before going but I believe this trip has helped settle it. I’ve become so much more confident, I feel I learned so much from the people volunteering at the dog shelter, the dogs, everyone I met, and just from being in Greece for so long. I got to immerse myself in their lifestyle which was very different but amazing. I constantly pushed myself out of my comfort zone and in return it was the most rewarding and impactful trip of my life.
IVHQ did an amazing job with their guidance and preparation resources, I hope to work with them again. The local team did exceptional work. Their communication and organization were outstanding, making it easy for volunteers to contribute effectively.
Volunteering at a dog shelter in Greece was an incredibly rewarding experience. The opportunity to work closely with the shelter's dedicated staff and the dogs in their care left a lasting impression on me. The shelter staff exhibited an unwavering commitment to the well-being of the dogs. Their passion and tireless efforts to provide food, shelter, and love to these animals were evident every day. Their dedication to creating a safe and nurturing environment for the dogs was truly inspiring.
During my time there, I had the chance to engage in various tasks, from feeding and grooming the dogs to taking them for walks and providing socialization. It was heartwarming to witness the positive changes in the dogs' behavior and demeanor as they received attention and care. Overall, my time volunteering at the dog shelter in Greece was a life-changing experience, thanks in large part to the incredible local staff, and IVHQ, and their dedication. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this meaningful endeavor, and I hope to return in the future to continue supporting their vital work.
I went in to my volunteering experience not knowing what volunteering with homeless people would be like. This project opened my eyes to the reality of homelessness. The locals organizers' passion for their work was inspiring and makes me want to continue volunteering on projects like this. I was hesitant to volunteer as a solo traveler as I felt that I may feel lonely or homesick but the in-country volunteer coordinator was so helpful. The hostel is a great way to meet people and make great friends. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to volunteering in Greece.
