For the month of February, join us in celebrating David MacMurtrie, who participated in a 12-month volunteer Quest with United Planet in Indonesia during 2015-2016. During his time in Indonesia, he taught at a special education school and made the most out of the opportunity to immerse in the local culture from attending Muslim weddings and festivals to participating in Ramadan. “I learned a lot about the world in myself…My favorite way of describing my year in Indonesia is that it was ‘A heck of an experience’. That’s really the best way to sum it up. I had a lot of really awesome times and…stepped out of my comfort zone a lot. I feel much more a part of the world now… There’s no question about whether or not I will travel again. I have to.”
To celebrate David’s dedication to fostering cross-cultural understanding and building his global competencies, those who enroll for an individual Long-term to Indonesia during the month of February will save $150 off their Quest fee*
