Spotlight on Country Manager James

Our delightful program on Rarotonga is guided by Country Managers Debi and James. Our February 2011 volunteer team was led by James, and we are eager to share his evaluation comments with you today! It is clear that our Country Managers are successful in making the most of the volunteer experience for all Global Volunteers and that they also make team members feel truly welcome in their community!

Bravo to our Cook Islands team, and please enjoy reading a few of James' most recent evaluations:

James is very well organized, easy to talk to and makes your time in the Cook Islands extremely comfortable. Even when we were awakened at 4 a.m. with a tsunami warning I know that James would give us all the direction we needed to stay safe. It was wonderful to work with James again and look forward to seeing him again.

Sensitive to the needs of others; calm; good problem solver; nice.

James was an amazing team leader! He’s reassuring and makes you feel instantly at home. He works with you to ensure a meaningful experience. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. I loved working with him and hope to return!! Thank you!

James is a HUGE asset to this program. He is welcoming, helpful and very friendly. A fantastic team leader!

James is a very kind man. He seems genuinely concerned about each team members experience.

We hope to hear from you soon and introduce you to the beautiful people of Rarotonga! Please do be in touch.
