I have volunteered with Global Volunteers to go to Castelvetrano, Sicily this May 2020!
Castelvetrano is a new addition for Global Volunteers; So much is needed to lay the program foundation and establish strong relationships with this partner community. I will be providing conversational English instruction to young adults in order to improve their future employment opportunities. I will also be pitching in on whatever additional projects are assigned in order to offer the most I can in service.
This trip is especially interesting for me because my Grandparents were born and raised in Sicily. They immigrated to the US without knowing English and it was quite difficult for them. In the short years I knew them, neither had any real grasp of English. It is my hope to help these young people achieve some comfort in their language skills so they can venture out of their village and into the world.
If you are able to help support this endeavor, I would be so grateful and your donation would be tax deductible. . Please consider donating a small amount, every dollar goes a long way. The funds raised will go directly to Global Volunteers to help defray the costs of this service project. I am hopeful for $2700 by the end of March.
