Peace Corps: What It Means To Serve
All are invited to a presentation by Amanda (Mandi) Horvath, BS ’06, during which she will share stories about her adventures as an environmental education volunteer with the US Peace Corps.
Mandi served from 2007-2010 in the schools of Ayolas, Paraguay, teaching about trash, recycling, organic materials, gardening, and wildlife. She organized bird festivals for the 5thand 6thgraders, formed a community eco group called Eco-Ayolas, and hosted a radio show every week to talk (in Spanish and Guarani) about different environmental topics and events the group was planning.
Mandi now works as a US Fish and Wildlife biologist in Denver, Colorado. She is active in the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Colorado, serving on the board of directors, coordinating welcome-home initiatives for the newest returned volunteers, working in a community garden, and helping restore hiking trails. She also volunteers with a local NGO called Groundwork Denver on community environmental initiatives in the Spanish speaking communities around Denver.
