Can't wait to travel with Bright Light again!

I took a group of students to Cuba this summer with Bright Light Volunteers. We had such a great time working on an organic farm in Vinales. There was a great blend of volunteering and cultural activities for our group. Our local guide, Eduardo, made this trip extra special. He was so warm, open, patient, intelligent and he told the best "yokes"! I plan to travel again with Bright Light to Peru next summer as well. Their prices are very affordable and everything was included.

Life changing

My volunteer trip to Ghana was very moving. It changed my life forever. I appreciate everything I have so much more and I learned to love everyone and everything. The villagers taught me to not care about what you don't have but instead to enjoy life and help others. This was an amazing trip, I am extremely grateful I was able to experience such a life changing moment. I know I am going to continue to try and make a difference in the world.

Amazing

This trip was absolutely amazing. The country was fascinating, the people were nice, and the guides were so helpful. I would definitely go back to Cuba. It was an experience like no other, and as inspired me to travel more.

Most amazing trip ever

As a parent of a student who volunteered, Bright Lights did an incredible job from start to finish. My daughter's experience to Ghana was definitely life-changing for her and a lifetime experience she'll never forget. The people of Ghana were extremely welcoming & appreciative of the work accomplished. It is such a great feeling knowing her group made such a difference across the world. The Adanu group was fabulous in keeping the families posted with their travels despite us being clear across the globe. So excited to see all the beautiful smiling faces of the villagers as well as our Chico group. It's my dream that many more students have the opportunity to experience what my daughter has. Thank you Catherine & the BLV Team!!

Once-in-a-lifetime

Bright Light Volunteers offers programs that impact one's consciousness and makes one aware of global social issues. It makes one want to make a global difference so that the world is a more united place instead of a divided place.
