Youth for Haiti Volunteers teaching Haitian Children

HHRD is happy to announce the Youth for Haiti Program 2011. Last year college students visited Haiti with Helping Hand for Relief and Development to assist in building shelters, volunteer in medical camps and taught Haitian children in small class rooms during their spring breaks from all over the US.

This year HHRD is once again inviting Youth Volunteers to contribute their time/efforts for Haiti Relief. Students will spend their Spring Break building dormitories for students and a Masjid for the Muslim community. They will interact with Haitian students, get a chance to teach them and volunteer at a local Helping Hand USA Health Clinic alongside supervised professionals
