Great Shape! has gained a new partner in our endeavors– Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) students! These students are part of the International Development Counseling team that works with non-profit organizations to provide support and resources to effectively apply international development projects. Currently, the MIT/IDC team works with non-profits in Ghana, India, Ecuador and Malawi ranging from helping the handicapped pursue job opportunities to small business management training.
This dedicated bunch of students will be working with Great Shape! to create the One Love Volunteer Center in Jamaica. Even when volunteers aren’t working on our projects the center will still be open with a specialty clinic, library and computer lab. Along with those aspects, there will also be a kitchen, pool, volunteer dorm, camping, guest rooms, meeting rooms and so much more. This opportunity is only in its beginning stages, but the ideas are flowing and pens are hitting paper!
