When I volunteer abroad, I'm helping my community - a community of global citizens and fellow humans. And, I'm becoming a more open-minded citizen with an international perspective in the process.

When I traveled on my first international volunteer experience in Ghana, I had no idea how I could help as a college student with no teaching experience. I quickly realized in my classroom that these students were eager to learn, but needed a bit more support in an over-crowded classroom. With the extra support from me, I was able to support a smaller group of students, and provide much-needed one-on-one attention. I may not have changed the world in my month abroad, but I have these kids a head start at learning the basics, and gave one very overworked teacher a bit more relief in focusing on her older students. My experience taught me that we all have the same motivations and desires, and we all deserve a chance at a quality education.
