There have been many requests for more information for opportunities for international students. Yes, Peace Corps is exclusively for American citizens but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t many other opportunities as well. Work with the United Nations as they work to support peace and development all around the world. They have long term volunteer assignments as well as short, three-month, trips. Take a look at the amazing work UN Volunteers are doing. Anything is possible! Keep the questions about being a volunteer coming.
Habitat for Humanity is an international as well as local organization. You can help build or restore homes right here in Massachusetts or travel throughout the country or around the world. These are short trips with groups of volunteers on a mission to help a family build a home. They have trips for youth as well as adults. See how you can get involved!
It’s Peace Corps week! Come by and take a look at all the books about volunteerism on display. Ask Ms.Davidov about her time in Macedonia or ask Ms.Kaplan about her time in Guatemala! How can you make a difference in your community? How can you help here at Dana Hall? Why is volunteering important to you? Would you like to travel around the world and become part of a completely different culture? Check out the library website this week for links to different volunteer organizations in the U.S. and all over the globe. Today we’ll feature the Peace Corps. Take a look at their website today! Read about different volunteers, their work, and the different communities they live in.
On Friday Ms. Cooney was lucky enough to interview some famous book characters in her classroom. Can you guess who?
