Changes for New Hope
Volunteer Skills Needed
First, we would like to say that it takes a special kind of person to be a volunteer. Secondly, we would like to say that our special kind of volunteer will have a high level of maturity and dedication to the project where we are working.
Ideally, volunteers will be proficient in Spanish, though not absolutely necessary. Lessons are available. A day in the life of a volunteer may include working with the children to teach different subjects, art projects, computer networking, fundraising, recreational activities with the children, grunt work such as being the day's "gopher'" (go for this, go for that) picking up supplies, general housekeeping, (non-Naomi style) and spending quality time visiting with families of the children. This is a general idea and by no means an exhaustive list. Also, if a certain aspect of the project is not a volunteer's particular 'cup of tea', there are other more suitable parts of our project for you to work on. We want you to be a happy volunteer.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, It is the only thing that ever has.”
