In September, Sammy Storz, a June graduate of St. Johnsbury Academy, will travel to Desab, Haiti. There she plans to teach English, art and sustainability to elementary students and adult learners.
Sammy will spend 3 months in Desab along with 3-5 other volunteers. The sponsoring organization is Volunteers for Peace. Volunteers For Peace (VFP) has been a Vermont-based non-profit organization since 1982. Its mission states that it "organizes, promotes and supports voluntary service opportunities in the USA and abroad as an effective means of intercultural education, service learning, and community development."
Sammy will attend Vassar College in the fall of 2016. You can learn more about her trip and follow links to Volunteers for Peace on her gofundme page: http://www.gofundme.com/sam2haiti.
