British Virgin Islands - 2012, Session 1

Setup Begins!

Location: West End, Tortola

The summer has started! Yesterday our first team members arrived in the BVI, ready to begin the two-week process known as "AQ Setup." Over the next fourteen days, we will welcome new and returning staff members from places like Vermont, Georgia, Colorado, California, and the UK. Our team of 45 will move, organize, and service all of the gear that makes the program run- dinghies, scuba equipment, windsurfers, outboard engines, etc., stow all of the dry food needed for a summer of 500 BVI students, practice hands-on skills like docking, anchoring, and CPR and first aid training, and much more... watch this space for updates and photos as we prepare for the summer. We are excited to bring our skills and passion for teaching together, and to pass this along to our students!
