Amazing experience

During the spring I spent three weeks volunteering in Quito. This was my first time outside the US by myself for a long period, and Ubelong helped me have a wonderful experience. Before I left I received a very helpful briefing manual that answered nearly all my questions, and any left unanswered, my mentor quickly responded on email. Also, before my departure I had a Skype safety meeting with my mentor to go over safety in the field and help calm my nerves. Once I got to Ecuador the family I stayed with was wonderful. I was made to feel like part of the family, which made for a very special experience. The teaching project I volunteered on, I will never forget. I help children learn English, but they helped me learn so much about who I am and want to become. With full confidence, I recommend Ubelong to anyone looking to volunteer abroad. It is a family I am proud to be apart of!
