About Program

This is a volunteer program which focus on the grassroots community work needed in the USA to build sustainable communities for future generations. You will learn about the conditions of those living below the poverty line within the United States in both rural and urban areas.

During the first two months, you will study and receive training. You will learn about the various forms of poverty, why it exists, and how it impacts people differently around the world. You will gain both theoretical knowledge and a toolkit of practical skills to help create positive change in communities.

For the next three months, you and your team will volunteer with our local non-profit partner organisations on community based projects to assist in food production, after school programs and other activities they are involved in.

In the final one month period, your team will travel in the USA and share your message to the public. You will raise awareness about the reality of poverty.

I recommend this program because it helps change lives

My experience was unique because I experienced a very interesting cultural and language exchange and also because you help others. The issue of food safety is one of the main problems in the United States and through this program we want to mitigate and replace all industrial food with organic food, which you can grow in your home garden. There is also a very interesting topic that is knowing the other side of the United States, its main problems and how volunteers help with climate change and global warming.

6 month program "Shoulder to shoulder for change"

This was a unique experience because it brings with it personal, professional and social growth. I believe that when you step out of your comfort zone you achieve unimaginable things. Things that you did not know about yourself and through the volunteer you manage to discover skills and strengths that you did not know you had. The opportunity to know another side of the United States with the problems they have like any country in the world, is a unique opportunity because you can understand that nothing is perfect. One World Center gave me the support I needed as a volunteer... I educate and educate myself about this world. Additional I give myself tools to achieve it. Manage to find a training school for volunteers who always fight for the safety and comfort of volunteers. The organization changed housing projects when we said we are concerned about the issue, always covered the expenses of food and transportation and this for me was very important because I always felt safe in a country that was not mine.Emotionally we had two teachers where they directed us and took us by the hand in the process. We always count on everyone to make our experience the best and so it was during the last 6 months

Pros
  • Learn about new cultures and a new language
  • Teaches you to get out of your comfort zone
  • They teach you to give and learn what is the most valuable thing you can have in life.
Cons
  • The emotional part is something very strong in this process
  • It is a program where the time requested is extensive
  • It is a program that can change depending on the circumstances
