Volunteering in Guatemala!
Organized by: Erika Donohue
EVENT DATE Oct 21, 2015
Recently I've been incredibly inspired to do bigger things in my life. It's always been my dream to travel. As I've grown older, helping others and promoting a healthier, happier world through support and cooperation has become an important part of my life. I realized that the best time to start making lifelong changes is now.
In October-November 2015, I hope to take time off from school in order to volunteer as an English language teacher in Guatemala. This opportunity also allows me to earn a TEFL/TESOL certifcate through the program Máximo Nivel. This opens so many doors for me as I move forward in my career!
Aside from being able to volunteer and develop educational skills, I will be able to experience a completely different culture! This is a great opportunity to enter a different environment and also to excercise and improve my Spanish speaking skills!
While I am confident that I could raise the necessary funds, with your support I could go beyond that and absolutley reach my goals. Donations that I receive will go straight to my program and anything else recreation and personal related will be raised by me.
I need to ensure that I can cover every cost of the trip, which will need to be booked and paid for prior to my departure. All of the extra funds would be especially amazing because I could donate and help out more while I am in the country.
My total costs will include airfare, program tuition and books, housing, travel medical insurance, and personal expenses.
I plan to raise $2,000 through your support.
When my program ends, I plan to stay in the country for a bit longer in order to explore the cultures and land as well as seek out more opportunities.
This is a life changing opportunity for me and I appreciate every contribution.
Thank you very much!
