My overall experience with UTW was nothing short of fantastic. From helping me find the best project for what I was looking for, to organizing the trip, to pre-departure training, and post-trip resources, they were helpful, pleasant, available, invested, and much more. I am so incredibly happy I chose to take my first big trip abroad with them, and hope to take many more with them in the future.

This experience gave me a better perspective on the issues that face countries like Nicaragua. I thought I was already very open minded and education, but realized I have a lot more to learn about the world.

I’m more aware of the ethics surrounding volunteering both domestically and abroad. It makes me want to volunteer more often, but with more research upfront about the organizations and the population they service.

Before Peru, I had never left the USA. Thanks to Unearth the World, and their step-by-step program, the guidance of their staff, and their vast amount of information regarding travel, I had a dream come true. Unearth the World was there every step of the way. Leaving the country for an extended period of time can be daunting for many. But the process and outline UEW puts forth is not only easy to understand, it’s informative.

Service: Supplemental Education in Peru, May/June 2015

I enjoyed the opportunity to experience Nicaragua through Unearth the World. The trip was more than I could have expected in so many ways. It was great to speak with local people and hear about their experiences and view on history and politics. I enjoyed our Spanish classes, service, and outings like visiting the volcano Masaya, the nature reserve, and going to Grenada.

It’s been close to two months since we’ve returned from Nicaragua, and I’m already eager to start planning for next year’s trip. As a student services practitioner, planning experiential education experiences for students not only excites and inspires me, but most importantly, provides me the opportunity to critically reflect on group dynamics, the role of service-learning abroad, and the importance of coordinating service trips for students.

Our trip was awesome and the kids had a life changing experience. We keep reminiscing about our trip every time we see each other on campus. I can’t think of anything that would have made the experience any better. Enrique; Leader of Catlin Gabel High School Group Trip

Service: Sustainable Tourism in Nicaragua, January 2016

My experience was great. Our two-week schedule was quite clear and I never had any questions that went unanswered. The trip itself, although in retrospect too brief, was an amazing experience filled with inspiring people running fantastic initiatives.

My experience with Unearth the World was rewarding, memorable, gratifying and unique. I love your mission and the way you bring it to life. Keep building. We need you.
