 If you are thinking about taking students abroad on a service trip or bringing the world into your classroom virtually through development education, please join us for this workshop and discussion by Daniela Papi! As an ex-JET and founder of PEPY Cambodia, Daniela will share lessons, tips, tools, and stories from the six years she lived in Cambodia and reflect on both the positive and negative effects she saw of the growing volunteer travel sector. You should walk away with ideas for how to avoid contributing to the volunteer travel horror stories and tips for how to bring development education into the classroom without needing to leave home.

While working as an English teacher in Shizuoka-ken, Japan, Daniela Papi organized a bike trip across Cambodia to build a school. That trip led Daniela to spend six years in Cambodia where she founded a youth leadership and education organization, PEPY, a development education travel company PEPY Tours, and an education and advocacy organization committed to helping people rethink volunteer travel, “Learning Service”.
