A completely life changing experience. You get put into a new environment with a bunch of people you've never met before, and you all help change the world just a little bit, how often do you get to do that? This experience truly changes your life, and you gain an all new appreciation for it. If this sounds inspiring, you have to do this trip..make this story, your story!

Going on a GIVE trip is my favorite memory, ever. I had never left the country and never gone anywhere without my family, so going to Nicaragua with GIVE was nerve wracking. From the moment I stepped foot off the flight to Nicaragua, though, I never felt like I wasn't with my family. The volunteers, GIVE group leaders and people in both Jiquillio and Little Corn Island are absolutely amazing and become your family. You all work together for a common goal and that is where the beauty lies. GIVE does an amazing job of not making you feel out of your comfort zone, despite the fact that you are in a third world country. Your living situation is completely comfortable and the food is amazing. You have the ability to shower daily and get your laundry done. I never experienced any culture shock in Nicaragua, the only thing I experienced was a new found appreciation and obsession with the little things in life (waking up early, making the most of my days, helping others). I remember getting back to the United States and not wanting any of the things I had because I didn't need them to be happy. I learned a lot about myself on my GIVE trip and I can't wait to go on another one in the future. GIVE trips are worth every penny because the experience you will have on them are priceless.

You know that saying, you don't know how good something is until you've tried it? Well... GIVE is not only AAAAHHHHMAAAZZZINNNGG, but it is the most MAGICAL experience I have ever had. The down to earth people, the hostile by the waterside, the dark jungle adventures, the wild fireman dance under the influence at the Monty's Bar Table, the laughs and giggles, the challenging games, and way way way more all compile into one huge experience of a lifetime. I welcome you guys who read my review, to give GIVE a go. You will become the coolest grandpa because you're going to have the best stories to tell.

Volunteering with GIVE was a truly empowering and life-changing experience. It gave me the chance to make a huge difference for developing communities in Nicaragua all while meeting some amazing people and having incredible amounts of fun. Not only are you building schools, educating children and laying foundations for further changes, you can climb volcanoes, go snorkeling, and partake in many other adventures.

GIVE's trip leaders were incredibly energetic, dynamic, and helpful throughout the entire trip and are clearly passionate about the cause and make you wish you didn't have to leave. They were professional when necessary, inspiring constantly, and your best friend the entire time.

No one can compare to the experience that GIVE offers and the work that it does. Their dedication to sustainable development ensures that the changes made by volunteers will be continuing to positively impact the communities for many years to come. This dedication is supported by great ideas, personal relationships with the community and a commitment to excellence.

Go on a GIVE trip and make a difference. Change your life and change the world; it will be the best decision you ever made.
