    This trip was the best experience of my life. I couldn't have asked for anything else. I got to experience a beautiful country while volunteering and making a difference. GIVE is truly amazing, and I would highly recommend their trips. I am already planning my next one!

    Words can't begin to describe the experience I had on WILD. Once again, GIVE has blown me away. I started with GIVE the summer of 2017 in Thailand and I wanted to become more involved, so I decided to sign up for WILD. In a cabin deep in the beautiful cascades of Washington, I had one of the best experiences of my life. I gained vital skills regarding Wilderness First Aid from a fantastic instructor. I also learned what it means to be a prepared international guide. The only thing that I could have hoped for was that the trip never ended. GIVE does an amazing job of bringing together like-minded people. My group that I experienced this trip with is as close to family as you could get. The guides on this trip are inspirational, passionate and driven. Their guidance truly made this trip worthwhile, and I could not recommend it more. Thank you to GIVE for one of the best weeks of my life.

    In these mountains I learned that when a group of passionate, talented, and capable people challenge themselves, a group of legends is born. I cannot speak enough for the effectiveness of this course, not just in terms of learning and adapting hard skills or honing soft skills; but in the way it manages to instill a sense of competence and courage in it’s students. I do not think there is a better feeling than knowing exactly what to do in an emergency situation and after becoming Wilderness First Aid certified at WILD, there was not one person who didn’t feel as though they were qualified to act in any emergency situation from the avalanches of the cascades to our own towns and homes. At WILD you summit both physical and emotional mountains... and I can vouch for the fact that at the top of both you will find a more capable, confident, and fearless version of yourself. This has been one of the most enlightening experiences of my life thus far, therefore I strongly encourage you to do the same and take the leap... Challenge yourself at WILD! It will be, without a doubt, one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever accomplish.

    I don't even know where to start. GIVE really, truly changed my life. I never saw potential in my life until I went on a trip with this organization and met all of the amazing and empowering guides and volunteers. GIVE empowers not only the locals we work with to create more sustainable lives for themselves, but also the volunteers to push their boundaries and understand that their actions can and will affect the world for the better. WILD presents volunteers with an incredible opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience in order to become more equipped to take on the world as global citizens. Not only did we learn skills that can pertain to our everyday lives, such as Wilderness First Aid and risk management, we also learned how to apply these skills in an international setting. Both the guides and the volunteers on this trip exemplify the idea of being "team human": understanding simply that all humans are equal, and therefore we have an obligation to help each other out in any way we can. WILD equips leaders with the necessary abilities to truly be global citizens and I am very happy I had the opportunity to take part in this trip alongside some amazing people.

    What a wonderful organization to have been apart of! Having always wanted to travel, finding GIVE, felt too good to be true. So obviously I signed up and went on this crazy journey through South East Asia, and I left a piece of my heart there. After that incredible trip last summer it was inevitable that I would be singing up to go on another adventure with this family I was lucky enough to be brought into. I spent my spring break in the mountains of Washington State with some of the most profound and inspiring leaders I have ever met, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is an honor to be apart of this organization that not only makes happiness and fun a priority, but also realizes the importance of being a global citizen and an all around good person. To anyone who is reading this that has ever felt that twinge of wanderlust in their chest, travel and enjoy yourself, change your life and help someone else along the way. I have GIVE to thank not only for the incredible skills I have gained through their trips such as Wilderness First Aid and leadership training, but I also thank them for showing me what it feels like to open my heart to the world and feel genuinely happy. I found mentors, friends and family in GIVE and I can only hope this review inspires some of you to do the same. Sign up for a GIVE trip and welcome to the family!!!

    WILD was one of the greatest and most impacting experiences of my life! I highly recommend that every young adult experience this course. It taught me Wilderness First Aid, leadership skills and avalanche training, all while making great new friends in the central Cascade Mountains of Washington. This course gave me more than knowledge and empowerment, but amazing memories and friends! If anyone is at all interested in learning Wilderness First Aid and/or gaining leadership skills, this is the best course out there! The instructors and guides are extremely knowledgeable, thorough and helpful! And if you enjoy nature and exploring, and being social, this course is even better! The scenery is breath taking, as well as the activities you can do while on this trip! DO IT DO IT DO IT! YOU WON'T REGRET IT I PROMISE!

    After a month long trip to Thailand and Laos through give, I found myself coming back for more. Spending a week tucked away in the Cascades with these beautiful people is an invaluable experience. Not only do you walk away a more competent leader, but you come back reminded of who you are at your core. GIVE continues to prove their superior facilitation capabilities time and time again; and I can confidently say that it was worth every penny.

    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
