As every year, CCI Greenheart staff and host organizations traveled to Amman, Jordan to interview Summer Work Travel program applicants.  This year, we interviewed wonderful participants, each excited about joining the program and ready to work in the United States. Over 80 participants were interviewed and hired!

Following the job fair, potential participants, host organizations, international sending agencies, and CCI Greenheart staff volunteered at Charity Clothing Bank. These volunteer projects have become a key component of CCI Greenheart job fairs. The volunteer event introduced participants to the Greenheart Club and the idea of volunteering during their program. We had the pleasure of working with Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization’s branch – Charity Clothing Bank on the project in Amman. For 3 hours, the volunteers sorted over 70 sacks of used clothes.

After the volunteer event, host organizations, CCI Greenheart staff, and international sending agencies visited Jordan’s most-visited tourist attraction, Petra. Petra is a historical and archeological city established as early as 312 BC in the southern region of Jordan. The site was breathtaking and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.

We look forward to having Jordanian participants on program!
