Friends of Batahola Volunteers (FOBV) is searching for volunteers to accompany the Centro Cultural Batahola Norte for two years beginning in the summer of 2015!
What is the Centro Cultural Batahola Norte?
Located in Managua, Nicaragua, the Centro Cultural Batahola Norte (CCBN) offers certified technical courses, art programs, violence prevention programs, scholarships, and a community library. Over 1,000 students enroll in 20 courses every year.
What do we do?
Batahola Volunteers co-teach the adult English class and respond directly to other needs expressed by the CCBN, according to the individual volunteer’s skills and interests. Some projects have included: accompanying women and youth in violence prevention programs, maintaining a connection between the Center and supporters in the U.S., and taking photos of cultural and community events.
Who supports the program?
Friends of Batahola Volunteers is supported by Volunteer Missionary Movement (VMM), an ecumenical Christian nonprofit organization that provides volunteers with a monthly stipend, medical and life-insurance, retreats, visa expenses, and a re-entry stipend upon completion.
Who are we looking for?
Two highly motivated young people committed to learning about and participating in social change for two years in Nicaragua! Volunteers accompany the CCBN in its mission to empower individuals, especially women and youth for social transformation through holistic education and artistic formation.
