Volunteer Shadowing

Our most recent adventure has been shadowing a current volunteer. We each went out on public transportation to various sites around the island, spending Monday afternoon through Wednesday morning with our volunteer. I got to visit Carline, another education volunteer who is located in a small town outside of Ocho Rios. She’s came with the group before ours, so she’s been at her site since September.

The video gives a quick look at her apartment, her literacy work at the local school, the beautiful nature in her community, and some of her friends. The last clip is a pair of student rehearsing a really cool poem that they will perform at Festival. (Please excuse the technical glitch at the beginning! And the audio was a little challenging so I put in a few subtitles.) Overall, I had a great time with Carline, gaining valuable advice and a real life look at a volunteer’s home and work. Hopefully I’ll be able to go back and visit at some point! -M

  1. Great job with video. But …. Let me quote or at least parphrase Susan, “did you see the new video from M&J it was about a home shadow and it HAD A PICTURE OF ANOTHER SIX IN SPIDER, HOW COMMON ARE THOSE THINGS?, CAN YOU BUY SIPIDER PROOF CLOTHES” Jedd, I think we have some sort of branding or image problem. ;).

  2. Fortunately, the spiders have kept their distance so far. The volunteer’s friend in the video actually went and grabbed that spider off its web. Apparently those ones are completely harmless…!
