Short-Term (few weeks/months)
In this project, we partner with the local government of Argao and youth associations who aim to promote the heritage of their town and showcase the rich culture of its people. The volunteers will develop better understanding of the local culture through active interaction with the local youth that is centered on participation, inclusion, culture and nature preservation. The international volunteers will participate in the following activities:
- Organization and participation in youth camp activities.
- Undertaking environmental related activities like coastal clean-up and advocacy in specific communities.
- Interacting with local children and youth through art, sports and team building activities
- Exchange of culture through music, games, food, language, etc.
Like any coastal town of Cebu, Argao is known for its scenic natural white sandy beaches, nature parks and is famously called “The Heritage Town” of Cebu due to its well preserved heritage sites and the rich culture of the happy and hospitable local people. During leisure time, volunteers can choose to experience various eco-tourism adventure activities around the town of Argao and climb mountains or explore its rivers, waterfalls and caves or head to nearby towns that are famous for whale shark watching. Rich heritage sites like churches and museums, nature parks and the world famous crystal clear sea waters are among the many other places that volunteers can visit, experience and explore.
