THEY ALREADY GOT INVOLVED

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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.

Si tenemos - aquí tienes

  1. Es recomendable mantener la habitación cerrada, ocultar los valores de la ventana. La escuela tiene una pequeña caja fuerte que se puede usar.
  2. Si deja el campus de Richmond Vale, notifique a su maestro u otro miembro del personal. Indique a dónde va, la hora prevista de regreso y, si es posible, un número de teléfono de contacto.
  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.
  8. Los estudiantes y los voluntarios están de acuerdo con su maestro y equipo cuando viajan o pasan la noche fuera del campus. Esto incluye quiénes se están yendo, a dónde y el horario.
  9. Es recomendable que cada equipo tenga una lista de información importante sobre cada estudiante, como el nombre completo, fecha de nacimiento, tipo de sangre, alergias, información importante relacionada con la persona y la dirección y los números de teléfono de un familiar.
  10. No camines solo fuera del Campus RVA.

 

Otros consejos

  1. Vístase adecuadamente en las áreas comunes del campus. Hay una gran cantidad de "tráfico oficial" en el área, como funcionarios del gobierno, empleados, excursionistas y otros visitantes.
  2. Mantenga su propio seguro para proteger sus objetos de valor como cámaras, iPhones o computadoras portátiles.
  3. Los familiares o amigos del extranjero son bienvenidos y pueden quedarse en el Centro de Naturaleza y Senderismo.
  4. Si un estudiante desea finalizar el programa, la persona debe abandonar la Academia Richmond Vale en un plazo de 3 a 5 días. Si se necesitan más días, se debe hacer un acuerdo especial con un maestro.
