    Hi,

    this summer i went on expedition to Peru for a month on world challenge with a group from my school... it was all about becoming more independant etc with us leading the expedition ourselves, and the teachers being there incase something went majorly wrong. we volunteered in an orphanage, went trekking and navigated our way around the country.
    anyway, i wondered if anyone else has been away volunteering before they left school, and if so where did they go/who with etc as i would really like to go away again next summer again

    any help would be much appreciated,
    thanks

    Sounds a little different, but i went to Los Angeles to work for the YMCA. I went by myself staying with my cousin and helping out with the residents and running various activities. I suppose it was more "upmarket" than peru but its a referance for me which hopefully oxford will enjoy reading ;-)
