Diversity Event: A Latinx Volunteer’s Story from Service
Join us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and learn about the challenging, rewarding, and inspirational moments from Miguel Garcia’s service. Latinx Volunteer Miguel served in the community economic development sector in the Dominican Republic, where he supported a local agricultural co-op on business planning, marketing, and budgeting. During his service, he became editor-and-chief of the volunteer magazine AplataNow! and established a partnership between Peace Corps Dominican Republic and the Colorado Rockies baseball team’s cultural development supervisor. After extending his service beyond 27 months, Miguel became a Volunteer leader and community economic development representative at the Dominican Ministry of Industry and Commerce.
