Looking for a volunteer opportunity?
Friends of Sharing the Dream in Guatemala is seeking volunteers to help in a variety of areas at their Vermillion store. Sharing the Dream is a fair-trade organization that works to reduce poverty in Guatemala through collaborative partnerships with Guatemalans.

A few projects that volunteers have helped with include designing displays, working with inventory, providing social media and website updates, and Spanish letter translation. By volunteering with Sharing the Dream, you have the opportunity to promote fair trade values and sustainability while fostering a global community.
