The JLC international volunteer program provides a unique opportunity for volunteers to immerse themselves in indigenous communities and actively contribute to ongoing projects that benefit the community as a whole. The impact of the program is two-fold: the communities receive much-needed support and sustainability for their initiatives, while the volunteers gain valuable experiences and insights into a different way of life.
By working and living with the community, volunteers can learn firsthand about indigenous culture, language, and traditions. The program encourages cultural exchange and understanding, creating a mutually beneficial relationship between the volunteers and the community. The program empowers the volunteers to become agents of change, and in doing so, helps them to become more informed and engaged global citizens.
