I can vouch for the learning experience. I learned to never give up!"

I believe Richmond Vale Academy is one of those places where you can get the information and education and certified programs in terms of what you really need to know about helping to save this world, our planet."
"For the past years Development Instructors trained at Richmond Vale Academy have come to work at our Child Aid Projects here Ecuador. We are impressed and satisfied with their efforts on the projects. The Development Instructors are well trained, serious, dedicated and hard working. We look forward to continue the cooperation with RVA in many years to come."
"Listen to each other and be willing to compromise. I had a great time, and hope to offer some tips to help you enjoy your time. Also, look beyond the little problems at the school, to the bigger picture of what you are doing at RVA. Most of what you learn won't be in courses or morning assemblies. You will learn through your experiences, and many times will have to initiate the learning yourself."
