    hey, I'm looking for a volunteering program in Latin america this summer. the GVI Costa Rica 2 week volunteering and adventure camp looks incredible but I've read that some people found this whole organisation to be a bit of a scam. have any of you gone on under 18's GVI trips? would you recommend it? thanks!

    GVI are one of the best known volunteer organisations but their trips aren't cheap and feedback can be mixed. Have you thought about alternative options, I just had a quick look and found these:
    Volunteer programs for teenagers abroad with Concordia - £300 one off fee
    Short term volunteer trips for 16 - 19 year olds with Projects Abroad - Lots of destinations!
    You can find more options to volunteer in Costa Rica here.
