THEY ALREADY GOT INVOLVED

  • 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.

  • Demion, St. Vincent

    Before RVA's public awareness campaign, many Vincentians did not know what permaculture was. Dreams of getting gold in a global treelympics were farfetched and plastic bottles were an environmental menace. Organic food, GMO awareness and so on were not highly extent. Through RVA's intervention with its 2012 -2021 Climate Compliance agenda, SVG is now a different nation with a more positive environmental attitude."

  • 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!"

  1. Es recomendable mantener la habitación cerrada, ocultar los valores de la ventana. La escuela tiene una pequeña caja fuerte que se puede usar.

  3. No nades solo.
  4. Usa el sentido común. No lleve objetos de valor claramente visibles como cámaras, iPods, carteras o cualquier cosa que se pueda ver y tomar fácilmente. Sé consciente de lo que sucede a tu alrededor.
  5. Evite las "situaciones problemáticas" en las calles, como personas que discuten, accidentes automovilísticos o personas que intentan atrapar a un ladrón.
  6. No invite a personas o invitados a RVA sin acuerdos previos. Por favor, comunique quién y cuándo, y el plazo.
  7. Cuando los nuevos estudiantes y voluntarios comienzan en RVA, se hace una introducción a todas las personas que trabajan en la Academia mediante un recorrido o un "Almuerzo de granjeros o Día de trabajo común". Si ve gente en el campus, quienes no trabajan o viven en RVA, notifíquenlo a un maestro.

  3. Los familiares o amigos del extranjero son bienvenidos y pueden quedarse en el Centro de Naturaleza y Senderismo.
