Informational meeting on World Camp volunteer opportunities held Feb. 25

BOONE—An informational meeting about World Camp Inc. will be held Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 7:30 p.m. in Plemmons Student Union’s  Table Rock Room at Appalachian State University.

Three students from Appalachian will share their experiences as volunteer teachers in Malawi, Africa, and Tela, Honduras.

The presentation will include pictures, videos and stories that illustrate the opportunities available to World Camp volunteers. By scheduling volunteer trips around university summer schedules, World Camp is the perfect volunteer opportunity for the dedicated student. The presentation offers useful details about summer programs, country characteristics and fundraising tips. Attending this session will inform students about how the dream of incorporating international travel with valuable volunteer experiences can become a reality with World Camp.

World Camp Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to empowering children in impoverished communities around the world through education. Since 2000, World Camp has worked in rural schools and street shelters in several countries teaching children about challenging issues that affect their future and communities, including HIV/AIDS prevention, nutrition, gender equality, environmental awareness and human rights.

Volunteers commit five weeks to teach in primary schools in poor rural and urban areas.  Volunteers also have the opportunity to plan, develop and execute a program designed to empower homeless orphans.  Volunteer days are long, usually lasting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. In addition to teaching and working, volunteers will have the opportunity to travel to various points of interest while in country.
