“My experience with SYRV was extremely worthwhile. Helping the community and being with a great group who was a lot of fun. I felt fully alive and part of the world. Coming back to LA I am now driven to seek that same inspiration and passion in my daily life. My experience in Nica was positive & life-changing and I am truly grateful to have been a part of it.” - Samantha S. / SYRV Volunteer Traveler & Donor
"SYRV really gave me the opportunity to use my skills and knowledge to give back to the community, as well as enabling me to experience the beauty and culture of Nicaragua in a very hands-on and personal way. Donating just one week of my time I was able to collaborate with a great team to provide clean drinking water for hundreds of school children for many years to come." - Jessica R. / SYRV Volunteer Traveler & Donor
“Truly an eye opening experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Inspiring and thought provoking in every way. New friends, and plenty of new experiences for all were found every day and I returned home with a new attitude and outlook on my own life. I intend to share my love of this experience with my friends and colleagues!” - Anne H. / SYRV Volunteer Traveler & Donor
