My name is Sierra Schriefer, and I have recently been accepted to participate overseas in a volunteer and leadership program with EDventure. EDventure is a volunteer organization which offers participants leadership and personal development certification, whilst engaging in meaningful volunteer projects in the developing world. I will be travelling with EDventure as a volunteer assisting in a humanitarian/conservation project in Thailand. During my program, I will spend 3 weeks engaging in leadership development workshops with other volunteers, while applying these skills directly to efforts in wildlife sanctuaries/rural schools in Thailand.
While assisting in Thailand, I will have direct contact with community members and community leaders, while also engaging in local cultural activities. This will help me to expand my international network, to understand the local communities and to build bridges with another culture that will further develop my global leadership skills.
This experience will no doubt push me beyond my comfort zone and allow me to fully experience learning in a new and unique format. Additionally, this experience will provide me the skills I need to enhance my resume/CV and prepare me to be an asset in the professional world.
Any financial sponsorship you/your company could provide for my EDventure Program would be greatly appreciated. The overall cost for the 3 week program includes my accommodation, meals, project resources, transportation within Thailand, and financial support for the community in which I will be volunteering. Even a minimal donation or sponsorship will help me toward this incredible opportunity.
