Volunteer, Various Departments - Cafe, Dining Hall, and Housekeeping. The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies: September 7th - November 5th, 2013

After spending 10 months in Guatemala, I was eager to return to my home of the previous two years, reconnect, and give back a little in the process. I wrote to the HR department and offered to come volunteer until the end of the season, and was welcomed back and encouraged to arrive as soon as possible! Halfway into my time there, I was offered an hourly paid position in the housekeeping department, and that is where I finished up the season. I have since returned to my hometown of Portland, after three years total away.
