Our storytellers in Episode 10 are:
Pam has been serving with Global Volunteers since 1997 and has led over 50 service programs since 2000. Pam earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work, and has been in private practice doing long-term psychotherapy for more than 40 years. She has served on boards for abused children, counseled patients with HIV, and participated in early research on death and dying. With all this, she says her “best job in the whole world is being a grandmother to my five grandchildren, ages 5 to 16.”
Julie began leading Global Volunteers teams in 2007 after serving on two U.S. service programs. She’s a licensed clinical social worker currently at a large urban PA school district. She also serves as the Board President of her county’s Department of Behavioral Health/Developmental Disabilities, is a board member of the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project, and is a Youth Aid Panel Volunteer.
Joe started with Global Volunteers in Guatemala in 1991 and has led more than 50 teams worldwide. He earned an MBA, and built a highly successful groundwater and water purification business, now serving as General Manager. He volunteers as an ESL tutor, and as a “big brother” to the same “little brother” he’s had for 20 years with “Big Brothers, Big Sisters.”
