    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

    Independence in most situations to start programs that address community needs. Ability to live and integrate abroad.

    Cons

    The relationships with site organizations seem to take precedence over volunteer compatibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Therapeutic counseling is needed for volunteers as many of the more difficult challenges are psychological. Administrators should be trained more often.
