– Lisa D’Alimonte & Devon Hamilton, preparing YCI volunteers. Lisa & Devon are part of a small group of International Development students from Humber College who will be volunteering in Ghana for 10 weeks starting this October. They will be holding a fundraiser in Toronto on September 23rd at The Emmet Ray on 924 College St that will include Live Music and Prizes!
Lisa D’Alimonte and Devon Hamilton are students in a Post Graduate Program in International Development at Humber College in Toronto. We, along with 3 other students from our class, will be travelling to Ghana on October 4th to work along side in country partners in Koforidua and Takoradi. We will work on capacity building, proposal writing, fundraising and delivering/facilitating workshops on development topics to community leaders and youth.
Devon and I will be using this YCI experience in Ghana towards the completion of our Post Graduate Certificate at Humber College, as the program requries that each student complete a 2 month placement either in Canada or overseas.
We are extremely excited for this experience and to put our skills to use in the field.
