THEY ALREADY GOT INVOLVED

  • Diana, Romania

    I am very proud to say I have been part of the greatest team there ever was. First let me welcome you to this piece of heaven we call Richmond in St. Vincent, I'm sure you love it (who wouldn't?!) and I know you will have a blast while learning and working here. I can vouch for the learning experience. I learned to never give up!"

  • Dr. Thompson, St. Vincent

    Here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, we are attempting to become a green island, looking at energy, at the way we conserve our environment. 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."

  • Tomika, St. Vincent

    When I left RVA I was a completely different person. I learned things that I would have learned in a 5 years program at university or I would not have learned at all. At the RVA I learned about the Garifuna history, farming, history and team work. From the experience I had while at the RVA I will say that sometimes the road gets rocky and the best thing to do is to keep moving on because somewhere ahead you will manage how to walk on the rocks.
