Carol's Castelvetrano Volunteer Trip

by Carol Corsell

Supporting: Volunteer Service for Children Worldwide for Global Volunteers


Campaign has ended.


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.

If you are interested in learning more about Global Volunteers, please go to their webpage and see the many opportunities where you can help. 

Thanks so very much,


Global Volunteers' mission is to connect people worldwide to wage peace and promote justice through service. Our goal is to sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their communities, so they can realize the full promise of their human potential.  Each Global Volunteer plays a significant role in positively impacting the people they serve and the communities they visit

Working on teams of up to 20 individuals, volunteers participate in one-to-three-week service opportunities where they create, nurture and sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their families.  Volunteers are welcomed into homes, classrooms, clinics, community centers, hospitals, orphanages, childcare centers, libraries, government offices, farm fields and more on exceptional international service-learning programs providing essential services of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  Volunteers work with and learn from and about local people who are making real change in their communities to help children grow and thrive. .

By supporting volunteers' efforts, you contribute directly to the future success of children in partner communities. Your generous donation to your chosen volunteer ensures that these services continue year-round.  Thank you for making this investment in the future of our world - our children!
