This June, 54 Summer Work Travel participants, with three representatives from their sending agency and one CCI Greenheart staff member, volunteered at a Florida non-profit. The participants, who all hail from the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Canada, painted doors, door frames, and baseboards. Although they had only gotten to the United States a couple days earlier and were a bit jetlagged, everyone had a great time volunteering before their programs got started.

Even the Florida heat did not deter them! After completing the painting, everyone enjoyed a pizza and pool party, courtesy of their sending agency.  Many of the participants expressed an interest in volunteering throughout their programs so we look forward to hearing about their activities!
