Loving the Neighbors Overseas: Carolina Zubler, Co-founder of Voices of Migrants, makes virtual service a possibility
How can I volunteer when in-person events aren't an option? How can I get past the hurdles of service over technology? My chat with Carolina Zubler addresses these questions and more! When in-person tutoring can't happen, Carolina Zubler persists nonetheless through her proactiveness with Vamos, a volunteer tutoring program in the DC-area for low-income children, run by students at the Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School. As a co-leader for the past two years, Zubler has experienced the turbulence in the classroom and virtually, but she shares how the program not only prevailed, but increased the amount of students and volunteers! Carolina Zubler has an incredible passion for serving others and working with children. From co-leading a tutoring program for low-income children to co-starting Voice of Migrants, she has a heart dedicated to loving her neighbor--even the neighbors across the sea. Her involvement with child development has driven her to become a prospective psychology major at Yale University, where she starts as a freshman this fall. Get involved with the amazing initiatives, like letter writing, from Voices of Migrants.
