Have a passion for helping others?

Does working with people from different cultures energize you?

Up for an awesome Caribbean adventure before summer is out?

GSI has been working with the rural community of Fond des Blancs, Haiti for 26 years. Over that time, we’ve been taking teams there to work with this community in the areas of education & development, experience Haitian life & culture, and of course have a lot of fun in the process. Ideally, we are seeking volunteers with experience or interest in the following fields to participate in a one-week service trip later this summer:

-Youth Programs

-Education (teaching, administration, etc.)
-International Development or Evaluation
-Business/Entrepreneurship or Marketing
-Other related fields

INTRIGUED?  See below for more information and contact GSI’s Executive Director, Josh Neal, at JoshNeal21@hotmail.com.  In your message, please include information on how you see yourself serving; a resume also helps to provide a launching point from which we will work together to match your skills with the community’s greatest needs.
