With the ever-changing work-from-home phase reaching new normality in many households across America, Outreach360 continues to adapt and overcome these challenges with virtual volunteering efforts. I was fortunate to serve with the first group of interns in a four-week experience to virtually teach student in Nicaragua. New opportunities are rising from the same organization to start volunteering in Fall 2020 with commitments that can fit your busy schedule and promote productivity in your life. That is why I’m so excited to see the Virtual Impact Program released just today!
The link above takes you to the Outreach360 website to explore the opportunities available currently. I’m looking forward to staying involved with this organization however I can, and I always looked forward to the days when I could be Teacher Brandon in a Zoom room. Even though I finished only two weeks ago, it feels so far away. Having new experiences with this organization will be something to look forward to this fall, especially since I’ll have some free time on the weekends outside of coursework and performing research at Cornell! Just a short 2-hour session is doable for any ‘busy’ person who wants to commit to a life changing experience, and you won’t regret it! I know that I have grown as a person in more ways that I could imagine through my four weeks with the students, and the bonds you form with them are just so precious. Now it’s a twelve week time period!! I hope that anyone reading this seriously considers this opportunity because it provides you with just as much as you commit to – and not everything in life comes with that guarantee.
Feliz fin de semana – Happy Weekend 🙂
