It was my first experience as a volunteer and it was fantastic!
I couldn't have asked for anything better: the staff and other volunteers are super friendly. I have met so many wonderful people!
The work is straightforward. The dorms are comfy and there is a fully equipped kitchen.
A big thank you to Rei and all the other volunteers for making this an unforgettable experience...Definitely recommended

This was my first experience as volunteer and it was a beautiful month thanks to Rei and the other staff.
The work is as expected without any complexities, the 2 days off are perfect for visit Busan and also nearby. I learnt a lot about Korean culture and also about other city’s culture thanks to the fact of working and having fun with other volunteers.
So thank you for this amazing first experience that open the door for the next adventures.

Tuve una experiencia muy agradable ☺️ esta experiencia me ayudó a conocer personas alrededor del mundo cada día, lo cuál fue muy gratificante. Puesto que aprendí sobre su cultura e idiomas. Me sentí bienvenida y acogida en todo momento. Fué mi hogar lejos de casa, me sentí respetada y valorada como parte del equipo. Y agradezco mucho la estadía y la oportunidad. El ambiente entre todos los voluntarios es genial y hay mucha diversión por todas partes. Recomiendo la experiencia.
