My Volunteer work campaign: La Fortuna,Costa Rica
Organized by: April Sim
Hello, I'm April a 16 year old community service volunteer who really needs your help!
The smallest contribution could make a HUGE impact!
From volunteering at my local nursing homes, to teaching children at my old elementary school. Volunteering has always been something I enjoy donating my times towards.
Of course small town volunteering is still an amazing opportunity to help a community, but I am grateful to find a program like Rustic Pathways that allows high school students who want to make a change, like me, to expand their hands to other parts of the world.
The program that I would be more than thankful to attend is the Rustic Pathways Intro to Community Service: Costa Rica.
Intro to Community Service: Costa Rica: Volunteers immerse themselves with the town of La Fortuna. We will teach native children English, promote and improve sustainability of rural towns, and build community infrastructures like schools and community centers.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE TUTORING: Many students in Costa Rica study English in school in order to develop skills that are necessary for many employment opportunities. Not only in the country, but also all around the world. Volunteers spend time tutoring students and reinforcing lessons they have learned in the classroom.
GREEN COMMUNITIES: With a vast rain forest filled with varieties of species, Costa Rica is renowned for its devotion to environmental protections. Rustic Pathways volunteers goals are to help promote sustainability in these community by sorting recyclables at a women’s cooperative; work with local students to build establish school gardens or create trash cans out of re-purposed water bottles to raise awareness.
What does this money go to?
All donation will help go towards air flight and program fees. It also is used to purchase school supplies for schools and games. I have already begun saving money and applying for volunteer scholarships.
Although the fee for this trip is quite pricey, the opportunity will only open more doors for me to volunteer as I get older. I chose Rustic Pathway specifically for their professionalism. They have had long-standing relationships with these communities for over 15 years and also provides a safe environment for their volunteers.
I promise that I will devote all my energy into my community service. You will not regret donating a single penny!
