Wonderfully enriching experience, extremely difficult and often frustrating. Roller coaster of 27 months!

Environment Volunteer (Former Employee)

ProsBeing able to apply skills and help communities who have requested assistance. Working abroad and leaning a new culture. Gaining a new perspective on the developing world. Learning about the practical applications of your education.

ConsMany hoops to jump through, rules and regulations associated with being a government employee. There is a culture of treating volunteers less like equals/peers in a workplace and more like students who require great supervision.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
