Hello all and thank you for stopping by!!
I was recently accepted to go on a one week volunteer trip to Puerto Rico in January 2020.
As a volunteer on the Community Development project in Puerto Rico I will gain a keen understanding of the communities and the challenges they face.
I will be volunteering in one of the following areas: local neighborhood organizations, community centers, parks, urban gardens and schools, helping each to improve their local communities. Work is often varied and changeable, requiring plenty of initiative and interaction with different stakeholders. Tasks can vary each day according to community needs. That makes this project ideal for me to support low income communities in any way I possibly can. Volunteering on the Community Development project is a rewarding way to provide hands on support to communities that need it.
I'm so excited and grateful for this opportunity.
As with any volunteer project, there are costs incurred.
If you or anyone you know would be able to help me offset some of these costs that are personally coming out of my pocket, I would greatly appreciate it.
I thank you in advance for your contribution, which will allow me to lend a helping hand where it is needed.
This project is one of the best ways to foster positive development and prioritize the needs, voice and choice of the local community.
I would like to note that any extra funds will go directly to the community via the volunteer program we are serving with.
