I am very glad I found this site to help me to achieve a goal! With this campaign, I am seeking to volunteer with children in Costa Rica. Children are capable of accomplishing awesome things and this combined with cultural exchange is enriching to me. I have a history of some travel and experiencing other cultures. There are many people and places to discover & the world is a beautiful place! Volunteerism is also apart of my history. I have volunteered as a gardener for a ministry, have done arts/crafts with the elderly at an adult daycare center (I hold a BA in Studio Art; 2003), have tutored children in various subjects while I was a librarian, volunteered at a Head Start school and I have substituted at elementary schools (though not exactly volunteer, this is further work I have done with children). IVHQ (International Volunteer HQ) is the program I would like to volunteer through. Click HERE to read about the program. The funding will help me to pay for the program fee (which is $785), travel insurance, airfare & a small spending allowance (food, local transportation, etc.). I hope that you will help me reach this goal! Thank you!
