Development Organization Places Volunteers Around the World

American Jewish World Service, an international development organization serving the developing world regardless of race, religion, or culture, wanted to expand its Volunteer Corps program, which places Jewish professionals on volunteer assignments with local NGOs in developing countries. Lodestar matched an AJWS challenge grant which enabled the promotion of the Volunteer Corps program in Arizona and the placement of several Arizona-based volunteers around the world.
