Volunteer in Cuba

Campaign has ended


I will volunteer with Global Volunteers in Havana, Cuba, this December. Please consider a 50% tax-deductible donation toward my service fee (covering all meals, accommodations, in-country transportation, and project costs), allowing me to serve a community in need

During my two-week service in Cuba, I will be working with the organizations Coordinación Obrero-Estudiantil Bautista de Cuba (Baptist Worker and Student Coordination of Cuba) and the Consejo de Iglesias de Cuba and (Cuban Council of Churches), also referred to as COEBAC and CIC, respectively. With the guidance of these community partners, I will have the opportunity to work on various initiatives:

  • Teaching English to improve Cubans' educational and employment opportunities 

  • Elderly Care by working in senior centers 

    • Assisting staff with labor and meal preparation 

    • Participating in engagement activities as individually requested

      • e.g: conversating; playing games; physical therapy

  • General Labor

  • Crafts & Knitting- assisting women in crafting homemade wares

    • Offering insight into items Americans are likely to purchase

Thank you so much for your support! I appreciate your belief in my service and look forward to sharing the outcome of my experience with you when I return. To everyone who contributed to my GoFundMe campaign, Thank you! It covered all of my airfare, visa, and travel insurance costs. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about Global Volunteers or the program I plan to serve. Thank you for helping me reach this incredible goal.

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!
