Wonderful Cook Islands

I have gone to the Cook Islands with Global Volunteers for eight years. There is a wonderful spirit on the Cook Islands that takes over your visit. It is relaxed and the people are warm and welcoming. I have been able to work in the same school every year and have watched the children grow and learn and benefit from the efforts of the volunteers. This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and make a difference.

Return again to Rarotonga

Next February (2017) will be my 11th Global Volunteers trip to the Cook Islands. Usually my main job is to tutor Maori students in English at the same primary school. Not only is it rewarding to see students progress year after year, but the community has taken me in as a contributing member.
