“Lattitude was a fantastic experience. Lattitude was my...”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by Khalil438 (1 review written)

Lattitude was a fantastic experience. Lattitude was my first time away from home and traveling by myself and the company enabled me to do that with some degree of confidence. The support I received from my Volunteer coordinator was very valuable. He was polite, friendly and would reply to any concern I had very quickly. However, I do also feel that it was very very overpriced and a lot of the time I found myself paying a lot of money for things I don't think I needed. If I had travelled with… Read Full Review

“Take the opportunity!”

Written on: 09/10/2013

Lattitude offered me exactly what I wanted - a long term volunteer project in New Zealand. Great! They were very helpful when I was researching, and throughout the pre-departure stage. There were costs involved - visas, flights etc, as expected, and yes, there is the payment to Lattitude themselves - but I got a LOT out of my year away. I also wanted a longer placement than normal, which they helped me organise. All the volunteers arriving in NZ at the same time had an orientation together… Read Full Review

“Amazing adventure”

Written on: 12/09/2013

Had such a fantastic time in Fiji volunteering as an English teacher. The kindness of the Fijians was something that I will never forget. I'm so glad that Lattitude managed to place me in a setting which they thought would suit me, it did. Living so rurally without much at all taught me so much. I think the length of the placement was right as well as I'd heard from others who had done the 3 months that it really wasn't long enough. The problems I had with Lattitude were: The huge fee that you… Read Full Review

“appalling ”

Written on: 31/08/2013

I found Lattitude horrible ! It is a rip off, you pay an overly amount off money which most off it goes to lattitudes back pocket! if you say you cant afford it they will fund it for you for free, so its ridiculous how some people have to pay and extraordinary amount of money and some none. they try to make them self's look professional while really there just scamming every one who goes with them its a joke. i recommend if you want to go some where apply directly to where you want to go not… Read Full Review

“Cannot fault Lattitude!”

Written on: 24/07/2013

Right from the beginning they responded efficiently to every query I had. A week after submitting my application I had a phone interview and then 2 weeks after that had a phone interview with someone in Australia. It was a few months before I heard I'd been accepted somewhere but that was expected. The pre-departure pack was great as it outlined step-by-step everything I needed to get sorted, this made everything simple and stress free - great when I was stressing about my exams. In Australia… Read Full Review

“Good without guarantee.”

Written on: 18/05/2013

I applied for a placement in New Zealand and they told me that I am confirmed 99%, so I thought that I will get a placement. But unfortunately 2 months before the departure they told me that I could not get a placement because some schools could not finance the volunteering anymore. I was really shocked and frustrated... and a bit angry, too, because they could have told me earlier... Before the refusal there were some other problems with the communication, because they did not answer my mails… Read Full Review

“Life changing, great value Gap year! ”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by Stephanie_Cuenca (1 review written)

I did my gap year with Lattitude in Ecuador Sept 2007- March 2008 and have never looked back! I had two placements during my 5 months in Cuenca (south of Ecuador): teaching in a primary school in the morning and helping in an orphanage in the afternoon. My placement also included accommodation with a local family, where I was given three meals per day. I really loved my placements, especially looking after the children in the orphanage, and learnt some tough life skills (including how to change… Read Full Review

“An excellent once in a lifetime experience”

Written on: 27/08/2012 by K.Bolade (1 review written)

I wanted to live in Japan to experience life in one of the most fascinating countries in the world, whilst doing something helpful and productive. I searched online and found Lattitude Global Volunteering (LGV). LGV are a charity that help in the personal and professional development of 17-25 year olds’ through comprehensive overseas volunteer placements in a local community. I went through LGV because it is a charity, thus its focus is not on money alone but more on making a lasting… Read Full Review

“One of the single best decisions of my life, amazing...”

Written on: 25/08/2012 by deano_1987 (1 review written)

I approached Lattitude Global Volunteering with little hope for any outcome that would benefit me but I immediately fell in love with the staff, their friendliness and willingness to help find the perfect opportunity for my situation. The interview day was very professional and I felt Lattitude approached each and every aspect to volunteering as all the "big-name" companies should do (but unfortuntely do not, as far as I am aware). They found me a unique but fantastic opportunity in Costa… Read Full Review

“An Amazing Experience”

Written on: 17/08/2012 by reganator5000 (1 review written)

Lattitude helped me embark on the best experience of my life so far. I volunteered in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the Indian Himalayas, and it was both a life changing experience and a ridiculous amount of fun. It's a great start to being able to volunteer abroad, and they provide lots of support before, during and after the placements (the after part is important-reverse culture shock is unsettling, to say the least). I ahve them to thank for a fantastic time, in which i learned new… Read Full Review

“The best overseas volunteering experience”

Written on: 16/08/2012

I decided to take a gap year between school and uni and wanted to do some overseas volunteering because I wanted to give something back to a community very different from my own. I chose Lattitude Global Volunteering (formerly GAP Activity Projects) because I had been recommended it by my sister who also went with them. Because I was given an interview I was able to specify where exactly I wanted to go (India) and what I wanted to do (teach English) and what type of school I wanted to go to… Read Full Review
