Apply to become a mentor for SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019: Full Bottle. Fewer Bottles (PV19) will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam from 8 – 21/7/2019. PV19 Participants will be working together and with locals in Bai Giua, a poverty-stricken community residing on the banks of the Red River, to alleviate imminent social and environmental issues – most predominant of which is plastic pollution. They are recruiting mentors — youths over 18 years of age — who will play an active role in conducting preparatory groundwork, building both the service and leadership curriculums, executing the project and running the post-project sustainability plan.
SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019 (PV19) is a lively 2-week service leadership program that focuses on the children residing on the banks of the Red River in Hanoi, Vietnam. The project aims to equip them with practical tools and solution-oriented lessons that focus on plastic pollution so that they may acquire the will and the skills to solve community problems that include, but are not limited to, environmental issues. All participants, including mentors and mentees, will sharpen their leadership abilities through the lessons and, while doing so, interpret the interconnectedness between what human beings consume-dispose and the ecosystem. PV19 will end our unique program with a musical performance to fundraise and support our local partners, the S-house Project, and the local SEALNet Hanoi Club.
The summer project is approved by Southeast Asian Service Leadership Network (SEALNet) who are a community of servant leaders, passionate to serve, equipped to make social changes in Southeast Asia and around the world.
