I am deeply committed to coupling environmental conservation practices with the social and development needs of local communities.
When I saw the position description for Protected Areas Management volunteers, I saw the potential for helping people incorporate sustainability into their lives. I was excited to create income-generating opportunities that lessen the pressures of poverty on the individual and the environment.
My choice to serve as a Protected Areas Management Volunteer was made to gain hands-on project management experience in the fields of International Development and Conservation. I was also excited to learn a new and useful language. To learn more about my primary project, click here.
Now that I have completed my service, I am confident that my experience will open doors at a government agency, think-tank, contracting agency, or non-profit organization. Do you know anyone who is hiring?
