IVHQ Volunteer Videos and Reviews

As August draws to a close and our two busiest months begin to quieten down we say a big hello to the 340 applicants we have had over the past week and a half. 

With volunteer abroad opportunities in Africa, Asia, South America and Central America we are positive that there will be a great volunteer program to suit you! Sally Stosich, currently on our Colombia program has let us know she is having a great time teaching in Colombia and staying for longer than planned! “Things are good here in Bogota. The local staff and host family have been wonderful to us all in the house. They have been very generous with us. This week so far has been introductory to the different programs around the city. I have enjoyed seeing all of them, and having the opportunity to make my own schedule as to where I'll be working during the week. Very accommodating! The apartment stay is lovely, very comfortable and home-like. The food is abundant, and delicious. I am happy. I will most likely stay on with the program here in Colombia and extend my stay after the initial 4 weeks!" Thanks, Sally!

Today is also a great day for our volunteer website, with the release of our second volunteer video. The video gives a wonderful insight into the positive interactions our volunteers have when they make a difference volunteering abroad. We know you will like it, and would love to receive your comments on our Facebook page.

News at head office is that Jamie-lee is currently in Africa checking out our Ghana,  Kenya, Uganda and South Africa programs! If you are currently on any of these programs give her a shout and let her know your thoughts. Jamie-lee will be in Africa for a month and will be chatting to volunteers for more feedback, inspecting our programs and ensuring that we continue to operate high quality and affordable volunteer programs for international volunteers. She’ll also be taking lots of photos to add to our volunteer photo gallery so you can see what the programs are like.

There’s always plenty going on at our offices here in New Zealand and for now we’ll leave you with a popular question from this week “Can I volunteer and live together with my friend?” For the answer to this and many other questions, take a look at our volunteer questions page.

From the team at IVHQ head office - Have a great week!
