Description:

Want to help develop sustainable agriculture projects but don't know how? Would like to
hear more
about what it's like to work with children in an orphanage? Interested in sharing your
experience
about teaching in a rural indigenous community?

We here at Idealist.org know it's tough to find volunteer opportunities without paying an
arm and a
leg. So we're teaming up with the Mesa de Voluntariado en el Ecuador to host a mini-event
dedicated
to you, the international volunteer who wants to give their time, energy and skills to a
good cause
but is having difficulty finding that meaningful experience. Or conversely, the
international
volunteer who wants to tell the world about their amazing experience or share lessons
learned, but
is unsure of the best way.

Come meet with us to:

* Gain insight into the Ecuadorian
volunteer landscape
* Dialogue about the challenges of
volunteering locally
* Chat with current volunteers
* Share experiences and resources
* Meet other like-minded people
* Learn more about the nonprofit
Open House week we are
coordinating
* Give your ideas on how Idealist.org
can better support you

This meeting is for:
English-speakers who are either traveling through or living in Quito, Ecuador. We welcome
anyone who
is interested in community work.

Current or former volunteers: Please join us to share experiences, resources and lessons
learned.

Prospective volunteers: Please join us to talk about the challenges of volunteering
locally, and
learn about how to become involved.
