Olivia's Volunteer Abroad
Organized by: Olivia Brocato
EVENT DATE Jul 09, 2015
Hello, my name is Olivia Brocato and I am raising money to fund my volunteer trip to New Zealand. I am participating in a four-week program through International Student Volunteers. ISV is noted as one of the "Top Ten Volunteer Organizations" by the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy. During my time in New Zealand, I will be volunteering with wildlife conservation through habitat restoration, protection of endangered species and sustainable tourism development.
Traveling is my biggest passion in life. I am always looking for the next opportunity to see an unfamiliar world and immerse myself in a different culture. Now, I have been given the opportunity to explore and experience some of the earth's greatest offerings while giving back at the same time. A volunteer trip abroad is an incredible way to explore another country without only taking from it.
The entire program costs $4,385.00 without airfare. This cost includes program research, set up and management, all meals during my volunteer project, administration and recruitment costs, and much more. As hard as I have been working at my part-time job while being a full-time student, I cannot achieve this goal alone before my departure date in July. There is no such thing as a small donation, anything helps immensely. Please help me get one step closer to attaining my goal and changing the world abroad through environmental protection!
