Latinos44 Puerto Rico Recovery Group and Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan are leading a Volunteer Service Trip to Cataño, Puerto Rico from March 21-24. We wanted to share the news in case others from the 44 Family are able or interested in joining. This is a volunteer effort, so folks would need to take care of flight and travel.
Arrive on March 21. There will likely be a team dinner/opportunity to meet up.
Service all day March 22 and 23 and depart on March 24 (or Arne's leaving that day, you are welcome to stay longer!).
Partner nonprofit: We are working with ConPRmetidos and Connect Relief for two days of action in the Catano neighborhood of San Juan. We are also talking to the Boy and Girls Club of PR. Service will likely be in schools where we'll hopefully be cleaning, painting, or similar activities. There is even discussion of putting up solar panels on roofs.
Airport: Folks should plan to arrive in the San Juan Airport
Car: we are still working with our partners on the island, but a few of us will have cars. Taxis/Uber is available on the island.
