Incredible four weeks

This was probably the most fun any type of schooling you can get in my opinion. The teacher was amazing and for four weeks she taught me how to teach other people and also how to learn each lesson I give. I am very happy that Give and Surf was able to help me do this course and give the opportunity to become a certified TEFL teacher. Would definitely recommend to anybody even considering it do it.

Give & Surf Volunteer

I volunteered with Give & Surf this summer and it was one of the best experience thus far for me. This was the first time I have traveled abroad by myself and I felt very comfortable and safe my entire time. Working with the kids was extremely rewarding and heart-warming.

This was such a growing experience and I am forever grateful for the individuals I was able to work with.

The staff was very accommodating and wanted the volunteers to have the best time possible. I highly recommend this organization-- the work they do is amazing! I am hoping to join Give & Surf again in the near future!

Give&Surf was an amazing experience

Volunteering with Give&Surf was an amazing experience that offered me a new perspective and better understanding of giving back in a meaningful way that is not intrusive on a communities culture. I was working with members of the community as well as teaching school to pre-school and elementary children. Members of the community welcomed Give&Surf volunteers and were warm and cheerful. The beautiful little kids would dive into your arms at the beginning of the day thrilled to be attending school. It was an enlightening and touching experience that will remain with me for the rest of my life. I can't wait to visit Give&Surf again down the road and see the progress that all the kids have made.
