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.
I will be directly involved in creating positive change and providing direct support within country. While working in classrooms/conservation efforts, I will teach groups of children reading and writing skills, art, and organize sports and group activities/help care for wildlife, such as monkeys or sea turtles/elephants and learn firsthand about environmental issues that affect us on a global scale.
While assisting in country, 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/and prepare me to be an asset in the professional world as I pursue a Masters in Counseling; Marriage and Family Therapist.
This 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.
If you have any questions about EDventure, or what I’ll be doing overseas, I’d be very happy to with meet you or give you a call to to explain how this program will benefit impoverished communities, as well as guiding me toward gaining further leadership skills and preparing me for my future. Furthermore, if there is anything I can do to meet your company/business objectives, such as publicizing my gratitude for your assistance, I would be happy to do so.
