Give is a family and one that I’m so grateful to have found and this time that I spent on WILD with them in Washington was no exception to this. I learned more than I thought possible in just a few days and honestly I never knew learning over spring break and playing out scenarios in the snow could be so fun. Whether you’re a past volunteer, aspiring GIVE employee, or someone who just stumbled upon this DO IT.
