Portland, Oregon, USA – 2014
While living in Córdoba in 2014, I wanted to find an organization that I could contribute to in a meaningful way and give back. I was fortunate to be introduced to the team at TierraVida who gladly welcomed me despite very limited Spanish. I was particularly interested in TierraVida given the focus on youth and climate change. I was excited to help the organization in some small part by teaching a series of classes intended to educate volunteers and staff about donor development, fundraising, events and networking. It was a wonderful experience that allowed insight to an exceptionally energetic and diverse organization doing great things globally and locally.
Eugene, Oregon, USA – 2013 I wanted to remain within my field of climate change while living in Córdoba for nearly four months and was thrilled to come across Fundación TierraVida. The group is breaking ground with their organizing to give the youth of Latin America a voice in the climate crisis and it was a pleasure and an inspiration to volunteer with them. The people at TierraVida are professional and hard working while being incredibly welcoming and fun. I hope that my translations, grant research and conception of several possible social businesses for the organization will serve them well!
