This ILP Volunteer Wrote The Sweetest Letter To Her Students

When volunteering with ILP you will become extremely attached to your students, and saying goodbye is going to be pretty rough, just so you know. 

I never knew I could love little Ukrainian, Lithuanian or Chinese kids so much! The kids I taught on my three ILP semesters have forever become a part of me and I think about them all the time. You will experience the same thing as you volunteer with ILP's humanitarian programs or on an exchange program in any of the countries available. 

Want to volunteer but don't know how to make it work financially? Here's how to pay less for your semester abroad!

Alyssa G. who volunteered with ILP in Lithuania also loved students she taught. Just read the following from a blog post she wrote and you'll be feeling all the feels. Careful, reading this will really make you want to pack up and start your semester volunteering ASAP.

"Dear Kids,

Today was my final day teaching you. I cried.

I think you know that I will miss you, at least I hope so.  But I do not think you realize just how much you have impacted my life.

When I came here, I did not know what to expect. I thought that traveling and getting to see the world would be the best part of this experience.

I could not have been more wrong.

When I look back on these 4 months, I will think of your beautiful faces and contagious laughs. I will remember the endless paper airplanes flying around my classroom and your love of tickling. I will think back to your excitement over getting the prize you had been saving for and how much you loved to make food during lessons. I will smile when I think of when you learned something new like being able to tell me where your eyes were or how to write a new word. I will laugh when I remember the crazy ideas you had and all the crazy things you talked me into doing.
