Kynett Fellow in International Studies

Casa Verde
Limon, Nicaragua

Aims of the Fellowship

I am responsible for three projects during my internship with Casa Verde; writing an instructional booklet about Casa Verde's Service Learning Program and their volunteer recruitment/admissions strategies, assisting with the implementation of service learning programs hosting students from the US, and helping organize the annual retreat for a local youth empowerment group called Formación Fenix. Academically, I hope to improve my ability to conduct longer term research projects, and present my findings in a more comprehensive, and articulate manner. From a professional perspective, I hope to improve my organizational skills, and my ability to work independently in an unfamiliar environment interact effectively with a variety of community partners that do not speak English.
