Volunteers can connect from anywhere on the globe. We have a new project with VYMA (www.vyma.org), being conducted by a human resources professional from Australia.
Victoria is spending 2 months in Los Angeles visiting friends and wanted to do something positive with her time here. So she found JRP on VolunteerMatch (www.volunteermatch.org), and talked to me while she was still at home in Australia to see if she could volunteer. VYMA needs to have new job descriptions written for their expanding staff, so it was a perfect match. Victoria visited the VYMA sites a couple of days after arriving in LA (thanks for overcoming jet lag!) and will complete her project during her vacation. Thanks to Victoria for generously donating her time and expertise while on vacation; we hope this is a fun and interesting to immerse yourself in LA!
