I am currently a member of this Americorps program, called AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps, and I wanted to share my experience with you in hopes that members of CHP might be interested in learning more.
Check out the International Summer Field School for anthropologists and cultural scientists in the heart of the Mediterranean, offering a unique opportunity to acquire some 'in the field' experience. The islands of Malta present a kaleidoscope of past and present: a fascinating legacy of European culture and rural Mediterranean traditions, represented in the living history of its fishing villages. Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta possesses a typical island culture. Yet, this has not led to isolation, on the contrary.
