Diakonos International, Inc. runs a children’s home in Carrefour, Haiti (called Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou) where we are raising young children to be leaders of tomorrow. These third-world Haitian children have unfound strengths and passions but need avenues to explore and opportunities to grow their dreams. They especially need mentorship from students and young adults who can use their gifts and talents and channel their energy to positively impact and help Diakonos transform the lives of vulnerable and destitute children in Haiti.
Diakonos International, Inc. is seeking driven students and young adults (Millennials, ages 18-30) to be actively involved for a term of one (1) year as a Next Generation (NG) Ambassador for Diakonos International, Inc.
