About

Imagine waking up with the Caribbean sun to a volunteer experience like no other this summer. Imagine rising to the sound of roosters crowing. Imagine sharing in the excitement of local children waiting patiently at your gate, eager to walk with you to summer camp. You can be on your way soon to an amazing adventure. For an enriching experience of a lifetime, join the HavServe team Work-A-Thon in Haiti summer 2017.

Volunteer with HavServe in Haiti's rural mountains and experience the culture, the history, the warm national character of this great Caribbean nation, as you witness the Haitian people's resilience and determination to make life better for themselves and their families. You can work alongside local Haitians on sustainable, community-driven projects and be welcomed as a neighbor and as a friend.

As a HavServe volunteer, you'll make a lasting impact on your new community and new friends as you teach children in a local classroom, improve the learning environment for elementary school children, assist teachers in classroom management and summer camp, or support individual or school gardening, computer classes, sewing workshops, microfinance training, health screening, or demonstrating the power of solar cookers to women entrepreneurs.

When you're not busy changing lives, you'll participate in immersive cultural activities. You'll have opportunities to talk with local rural experts about Haiti's current social issues, enjoy the village waterfalls or wander the village market and purchase Haiti's fresh organic fruits and vegetables.
