Fondasyon Konesans Ak Libète (FOKAL)

FOKAL is excited to announce that they are hosting two, upcoming Teen Camps to assist with the continued development and education of Haiti’s young adults! Volunteers with expertise in first aid, risk management, political science, and government are REQUIRED for the following camps:

1)  Youth Programs - requires energetic and dedicated volunteers, certified in First Aid, to train Haitian teens and other citizens interested in the development and progress of Haiti’s young adult population. This 5-day camp will take place in Ennery, Haiti (near Gonaïves) during the first week of August. In addition to First Aid, experience with risk management and youth leadership is a definite asset. Volunteers will be providing critical information and education in the following areas: 

■      emergencies

■      fire safety

■      hurricane safety

■      earthquake safety

Note: Lodging and food will be provided for all volunteers.

 

2)  Project Wave of the Future - requires passionate and committed volunteers with knowledge and interest in political science and government. This 5-day camp, being held from October 29-November 2, 2010, focuses on educating Haitian youth and teens on political debates, government advocacy and civic education; ultimately concluding with a mock parliamentary election.

Note: Lodging and food will be provided for all volunteers.
