We have a new UmbraViews video up! This one, which is also part of the new Community Engagement Video Series (see the other video on the UNICEF volunteer opportunity), details the volunteer opportunity offered to students study abroad in Italy with The Umbra Institute.
Here’s an excerpt from the Volunteering page on our website:“Student volunteers will be introduced to fair trade in both a global and a local context, explore the social, political, and economic implications of their efforts, and research current initiatives in Italy. Monimbò, a local fair trade cooperative, promotes goods that protect workers’ rights and the environment. Interns assist with store operations and event planning, the monthly fair trade market, local and national public education and awareness campaigns, and marketing projects.”
Let us know what you think!
