Pros

The language training was very thorough, as was the cultural training.

Cons

The host country national staff was all fantastic; however, sometimes the country director and staff were not as professional. It varies so much from country to country, though, so I'm sure it's better in other places.

    Pros

    Excellent volunteer support in every aspect including health, mental, and administrative. I received the best medical care of my life.

    Cons

    Pay as a volunteer is abysmal and I did not receive a pay raise my entire 2 years of service, despite filling out several living allowance surveys and obvious signs of incredible cost of living increases in the country. Stipend was not enough to live on and I had to support myself with outside funding.
