The Volunteer Experience

Recently, I wrote a blog post for the WorldTeach organization in an effort to promote my latest book.  In the blog, I briefly discuss some of my travel experiences and touch up on the value of volunteering.  If you're interested in reading the post, you can find it here - Reflections from a WorldTeach Namibia Alumnus.

With my newest book, Watermelon is Life, I really hope to shed some light on the life of a volunteer teacher and perhaps inspire other to get involved, travel, and attempt to learn about other people and cultures.  The primary goal behind this project is to promote volunteerism and raise money for the Unlock Foundation.  For every copy of the book that is purchased, $1 will be donated to this foundation which seeks to address critical educational gaps in rural African schools.
